The biochemistry program at Rutgers-Camden is offered through the Chemistry Department. The objective is to give students a good background in chemistry, while allowing them to take classes in biology so that they have a solid background in all aspects of biochemistry. Thus, the program includes classes in chemistry and biology (requirements). Students will be prepared to pursue graduate studies of biochemistry, bio-analytical, bio-organic, and molecular biology, as well as employment in industry (e.g. pharmaceutical companies)
While it is possible to fill all of the requirements other ways, it is important to realize that some classes are only offered in the Fall and some are only offered in the Spring.
