Department of Biochemistry & Chemistry


About the Department

Our biochemistry and chemistry students work very closely with the faculty and their peers on relevant scientific questions in our new, state-of-the-art laboratory facilities. Our innovative curriculum, which emphasizes research, communication, and community, effectively prepares students for success in their careers.

All biochemistry and chemistry majors complete a hands-on, mentored research experience and/or internship and present the results of their research in professional settings. These experiences, when combined with our innovative curriculum, prepare students for success after graduation, whether they go on to work in industry or to further their education in graduate school or medical school or another professional health school.




Experiences & Opportunities

At Westminster, learning isn’t limited to the classroom. In each of our 50+ majors and pre-professional programs, your education will be enhanced by the purposeful combination of expert classroom instruction and hands-on learning opportunities. Internships, undergraduate research and studying abroad are just a few of the real experiences our students get that lead to real success after graduation.
