Biochemistry is the science of life and the relationship of living beings with the environment.

The biochemistry program builds on your inquisitive and curious nature — you’ll learn to find answers by practicing advanced science in Trinity’s state-of-the-art laboratories. Biochemistry provides a solid foundation in analytical, organic, and physical chemistry, and examines the central roles that chemistry plays in biology and the global environment.

You’ll gain the knowledge and skills necessary to be successful in fields where women are still underrepresented, and have the opportunity to explore options such as graduate school, medical school, or employment in the industrial and non-profit sectors.
