Biochemistry

A Masters Degree program in Biochemistry is suitable for students who have attained an undergraduate degree in either chemistry or biology with sound biochemical knowledge. The main topics covered include the molecular structure, functions of various enzymes and a detailed study of essential biochemical processes.

Masters degree students in Biochemistry examine the structure, function and biological processes of different molecules and macromolecules in complex biological systems. Some universities curriculum integrates either molecular biology or molecular genetics. Research topics are wide and include the biochemical basis of human diseases, protein structure and conformation, non-invasive diagnostics, biochemical pathway regulation and drug development. Graduates are able to synthesize this knowledge and apply it in a multitude of laboratory applications.

Master in Biochemistry programs require a bachelor's degree in a related field and sometimes work experience. A masters degree in Biochemistry is intended for undergraduate degree students who are looking to advance a career, strengthen a biochemical background or prepare for a doctorate program. The masters program prepares students to work in either teaching or research positions, in both public and private sectors dealing with the chemical and biological sciences. Specific careers in this field include: research technicians, clinical laboratory technologists, biology teacher in high school or community college, and clinical research coordinator and associate.
