Today’s renaissance of biochemistry is enhanced by the growing need for a mechanistic understanding of biological processes in academia, industry and medicine. In response to a rising demand for individuals with extensive biochemical training, TU’s graduate option provides students with detailed knowledge of basic principles in biochemistry.

We stress the applications of their curriculum in a stimulating laboratory environment along with the critical thinking skills necessary to succeed in their chosen endeavors. Students regularly interact with chemists and material scientists, creating research collaborations across traditional boundaries. Graduates gain a unique perspective on fundamental biological problems and contribute to scientific progress and society.

The Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry is not accepting applications or matriculating new graduate students into the master’s program in biochemistry beyond the fall 2019 term. The information above is for reference purposes only and does not constitute an intent to consider or admit new students beyond the fall 2019 term.

Program Objectives

Master of Science in Biochemistry

  1. Focus on coursework and independent research supervised by a faculty advisor (thesis option).
  2. Develop a working knowledge of basic biochemical principles, an understanding of their application in the laboratory, and the critical thinking skills needed to succeed in their field.
  3. Develop and implement an independent research project in the biochemical sciences that is expected to generate novel results contributing to their field.
