Biochemistry is a scientific discipline in which living systems, biological and related substances, reactions, and processes are studied at the molecular level. The curriculum emphasizes the integration of the foundations of chemistry, physics, and the biological sciences with the contemporary problems of biochemistry. Laboratory courses in biochemistry using modern instrumentation and procedures supplement the lecture instruction and expose students to a wide range of techniques used in biochemical research.

The curriculum prepares students for graduate study in biochemistry or related fields, including multidisciplinary research on problems in agriculture and the environment; professional school (medical or dental); immediate employment in research laboratories in industry or government; or other careers that may not entail continued laboratory work but make use of understanding of science and scientific research. By selecting appropriate electives, a student also can prepare for a career in areas such as genetic engineering and other aspects of biotechnology.

For Douglass, Livingston, Rutgers, and University College students, the requirements for a B.A. degree are listed below in VIII A, except that these students are not required to take the courses listed under Professional Ethics,nor are they required to take 11:115: 406 Problem Solving in Biochemistry. However, candidates for a B.S. degree must take 11:115:406 and two additional science courses from VIII B.
