The aim of biochemistry is to understand and explain the operation of living systems through a study of their chemical, molecular, and cellular properties. In the post-genomic era, discoveries in biochemistry are transforming medicine, agriculture, and industry.

The biochemistry programs at Carleton are also an excellent option for students considering applying to medicine and other health sciences professional programs. A degree in biochemistry will give you the tools to succeed in the 21st century.
