Biochem 5613 has been previously only offered in the spring, but Biochemistry is a growing major and new requirement for many pre-health professions. Many professional schools including medical school require a Biochemistry course. Students may take Biochem 4511, Introduction to Biological Chemistry, or they can take Biochem 5613 and Biochem 5614 to get the content of Biochem 4511 in a more in-depth format.
Biochem 5614 is currently only offered in the autumn semester. However, depending on the enrollment in this new offering of Biochem 5613 in Autumn 2018 and student interest in pursuing a two-semester sequence, the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry will consider an additional offering of Biochem 5614 in Spring ’19.
If you are interested in declaring Biochemistry as a major or a minor or have any questions, please call the undergraduate advising office in Celeste 110 to schedule an appointment at (614) 292-1204.
