Chemistry Degree

Chemistry is the study of the composition and properties of matter, the transformations that matter may undergo, and the energy changes associated with such transformations. There are five main areas of chemistry - analytical chemistry, inorganic chemistry, organic chemistry, physical chemistry, and biochemistry.

Biochemistry Degree

Biochemistry is an interdisciplinary program which combines Biochemistry, Cell Biology, Genetics, and Microbiology with the techniques of the physical sciences to investigate living systems. Through this program, you will gain a thorough understanding of the molecular aspects of the structure, function, and metabolism of prokaryotes, animals, and plants. You will also obtain experience in up-to-date laboratory techniques and procedures.

This is one of the most exciting areas of science at this time and students will be kept abreast of advances in the field and their impact on humans and other life forms.
