For students interested in graduate studies, MA304 and MA351 are recommended as elective courses. A biochemistry/molecular biology concentration within the Interdisciplinary Major in Biology/Chemistry is available to students planning careers in biochemistry. This concentration also provides students with a foundation for graduate studies in biochemistry, molecular, or cell biology. A chemistry minor is also available. CH110, CH112, CH113, CH114, and GL110 may be elected in partial fulfillment of the natural science core requirement for the non-natural science major.
