    What a great time to be exploring opportunities in biochemistry!

    Northeastern engages you in two integrated paths to a career in biochemistry: rigorous coursework that positions you to interpret the ever-expanding knowledge base and hands-on learning that positions you to leverage cutting-edge technology to solve fundamental problems in the chemistry of life.

    Our interdisciplinary program offers a broad array of opportunities for biochemistry majors to carry out faculty-mentored research - with investigators from bioengineering, biology, chemical engineering, chemistry, pharmaceutical sciences, physics, psychology and other academic units.

    Northeastern’s signature co-op program provides complementary opportunities in world-class biotechnology companies, hospitals and research facilities as close as Boston and as far as your global interest takes you.

    Congratulations on choosing such an exciting major! We welcome any inquiries about our own Biochemistry Program.
