The biochemistry program strives to make academic advising readily available to our majors from day one. In fact, first-year undergraduates are assigned faculty advisors before they arrive on campus, and students who change their major to biochemistry are assigned a biochemistry advisor immediately.
Core courses of the curriculum are taught by faculty from CAS, CALS and COM and many biochemistry majors undertake undergraduate research with faculty members from these colleges. The fact that students and faculty from different colleges interact is a strength of our program as it provides additional opportunities for students to receive informal career advising from a broad pool of faculty with expertise in diverse areas. With that in mind we offer several different ways for our students to receive academic advising. See more information below.
