The Department of Biochemistry offers programs leading to the Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy degrees. The doctoral degree is standard in the department for students planning teaching or research careers in this field; master's study is recommended only for special circumstances. The department attempts to pattern students' programs according to their interests and, at the same time, to provide them with diverse experiences in the major areas of biochemistry. An M.D.-Ph.D. program with a major in biochemistry is also available.
