The major is a good choice if you are interested in studying the applications of chemistry in biological systems.

Depending upon which courses you select, you may leave the program prepared to enter a graduate or professional program in chemistry, biochemistry, medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine, or a number of other disciplines that rely on chemistry as a fundamental science. You may also enter the workforce immediately after completing the program, seeking a position in the rapidly growing biotechnology industry.
