Biochemistry in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences will teach you how to apply science and math towards our understanding of human, plant and animal life. You will learn by working directly with your instructors in nationally recognized research laboratories. If your goal is to work in the pharmaceutical, food or agribusiness industries, or if you think you would like to go on to medical, pharmacy, veterinary or graduate school, agricultural biochemistry is the starting point for your adventure.
