Biochemistry

Major

Students work in a chemistry lab in Swanson Science Center as seen October 21, 2019 during the Creosote Affects photo shoot at Washington & Jefferson College.

The mission of the Biochemistry program, in conjunction with the liberal arts environment at Washington & Jefferson College, is to develop students into both broadly and specifically educated individuals prepared to perform competitively in a scientific community that is increasingly seeking well-rounded professionals. Drawing upon the strengths of the contributing departments (primarily Biology and Chemistry), the Biochemistry program will provide a selection of courses, an advising structure, research opportunities, instrumentation, and committed faculty to support a rigorous interdisciplinary major in biochemistry.

Beyond the Classroom

Students have a wide array of opportunities for research, internships, conferences, and networking beyond the classroom that give them an advantage to prepare for life after W&J.
