The biochemistry major provides students with an integrated education in biochemistry that brings together the basics of biochemistry and its application to biological systems. The major takes advantage of the diversity of molecular/biochemical research and coursework that is offered at Rutgers at School of Environmental and Biological Sciences (SEBS) and the other schools. Students will apply their basic understanding of biochemistry to a specific area of interest, ranging from toxicology/pharmacology to food and nutritional sciences, microbiology, animal science, and plant biology. This redesigned and enhanced curriculum follows the recommendations of the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (ASBMB) and has components of both a traditional course-centered approach to teaching and the more current content- and outcome-centered approach. The purpose of the major is to prepare students for futures in science, either through obtaining advanced degrees or through entering the workforce in the pharmaceutical, biotechnological and chemical industries, government service, communications, law, and many other fields.
