Our students benefit from the College of Agriculture’s strong tradition of faculty and staff working closely with students to help them succeed. The College also enjoys one of the highest rates of scholarship funding to students. Consequently, students in the Department of Biochemistry are quite successful, with over 40% receiving scholarships from the College each year. In addition, graduates of the College of Agriculture benefit from a very high placement rate with over 90% of students employed or continuing their education following completion of the bachelor’s degree.
It is worthwhile to note that even though we are part of the College of Agriculture, no agricultural experience or interest in agriculture is necessary to succeed in our program, and no agricultural coursework is required for a degree in biochemistry.
