The School of Natural Science and Mathematics offers courses in Biochemistry for students pursuing degrees in biology, biotechnology, biochemistry and biophysics, informatics, or instruction for pre-professional programs in medicine, engineering, dentistry, optometry, chemistry and pharmacy. Students can also take courses in preparation for other degrees in science or mathematics and related employment in areas such as natural resources management, public health, quality control, environmental assessment, urban planning, and municipal water treatment.

Indiana University East offers a BA in Biochemistry with six principal courses in the field of biochemistry and organic chemistry:

  • General Organic Biochemistry (CHEM-C 108)
    (Offered annually)
  • Organic Chemistry Lectures I and lab (CHEM-C 341 / C 343)
    (Offered Fall semesters)
  • Organic Chemistry Lectures II and lab (CHEM-C 342 / C 344)
    (Offered Spring semesters)
  • Biological Chemistry (CHEM-C 483)
    (Offered alternate spring semesters)

In addition, students may pursue directed study of topics in biochemistry and organic chemistry in Special Topics in Chemistry (CHEM-C 390) as well as directed Individual Study (CHEM C490). with instructor approval.
