Biochemistry is the study of the chemical processes and transformations in living organisms. This major is well suited for students who enjoy working at the interface of biology and chemistry and it deals with the structure and function of cellular components, such as proteins, carbohydrates, lipids, nucleic acids, and other biomolecules. People with biochemistry degrees work in a variety of sectors including health, education, and research. In addition, many biochemistry students also go on to medical or dental school.
