By Lani Stone, Academic Advisor, Department of Chemistry
The Chemistry Department is in the process of creating a bachelor of arts in Biochemistry. The Department has been given "permission to develop" status from the Higher Education Coordinating Board (HECB) with final approval of the degree awaiting HECB approval. The proposed BA in Biochemistry is designed for students who are interested in studying biochemistry, but who are seeking a broader educational experience than is practical given the extensive upper-division lecture and laboratory requirements of the existing bachelor of science degree. The BA in Biochemistry requires 180 credits (the BS in Biochemistry requires 196 credits) involving a variety of elective courses in related sciences, history, and public policy . The BA degree program will provide students with a fundamental background in biochemistry, and also gives students the chance to expand their educational focus with courses in related areas of interest. We hope to have the BA in place by autumn quarter 2007.
