Taylor’s Biochemistry major merges chemistry and biology into the study of living organisms’ microscopic intricacies, giving you the chance to examine the chemical aspects of living things and the chemical processes that support biological life. This broad and deep knowledge will come together to prepare you for a future career in biochemistry, whether that be an agriculture, toxicology, medicine, or biochemical career.
As a biological chemistry major, you will take classes to help you develop a practical understanding of concepts and theories across the spectrums of chemistry and biology. These include classes on analytical, organic, and physical chemistry, as well as cell, molecular, genetic, and microbiology. Class labs and research projects will give you hands-on experiences with protein purification, enzyme kinetics, chromatography, polymerase chain reactions, and many other biochemical phenomena.
Taylor’s chemistry program is one of 12 Council for Christian Colleges and Universities (CCCU) members certified by the American Chemical Society and the only CCCU university in Indiana with ACS certification.
