ABOUT THE PROGRAM
The Biological Chemistry major at Culver-Stockton College is a solid first step for students who plan to go to graduate school, especially to study biochemistry, molecular biology and other biological chemistry related fields. It is one of the most popular science majors at Culver-Stockton College. This major is also a perfect fit for students interested in a pre-health major and are looking toward careers in medicine, pharmacy, veterinary, dentistry and other health-related fields. Through the curriculum, students will gain hands-on experience in both biology and chemistry. We are proud that several biological chemistry graduates went to medical, pharmacy and veterinary schools.
WHY SHOULD I MAJOR IN BIOLOGICAL CHEMISTRY?
You’ll be ready to take on the world — as a research chemist in industry or in fields such as medicine where the analytical and technical skills you have learned are highly valued. Graduates typically find jobs in analytical and forensic chemistry, biotechnology, business, education, government, industry and toxicology. Graduates also will have an excellent background for less traditional careers such as information scientists, health and safety specialists and science writers.
