Advising for Prospective and Transfer Students
Biochemistry at CSB/SJU

The biochemistry major combines the strengths of both our chemistry and biology faculty. This gives our students the opportunity to do the kind of original research that will get them prepared for their future-either in graduate school, medical school or in the job market.
