Students in this interdisciplinary field explore life’s molecular building blocks and the intersections of biology and chemistry. Majors complete six required courses in biology and chemistry, then choose electives from such courses as Cell Biology, Organic Chemistry, Thermodynamics and Kinetics, Genetics, Immunology, Microbiology, Environmental Physiology and Biochemistry of Animals, Inorganic Chemistry, Chemical Analysis, and Advanced Biochemistry.
Science students pursue their work in Spencer Hall, Sewanee’s new, LEED-certified $22 million science facility.
