The Master of Biochemistry is a master’s degree in biochemistry, in which students examine the structures, functions, and biological processes of various molecules in intricate biological systems.
Coursework for this degree includes instruction in chemistry, biology, pharmacology, physiology, and microbiology and in topics such as organic chemistry, protein chemistry, bioanalytical chemistry, enzymology. Many programs allow specializations like molecular biology, structural biology, and bioorganic chemistry. Both thesis and non-thesis programs are available. Thesis programs require more independent research and lab work.
Schools offer one and two-year programs with tuition starting at $20,000 USD per academic year, although partial merit scholarships are available for high performing international students based on IELTS (6.5+) and TOEFL (90+) exam scores as well as CGPA and GRE (300+) or GMAT (550+) exam scores.
