Biochemistry, B.A. UG
The Biochemistry program is designed to provide students with basic knowledge of chemistry, biology, and physics and the appropriate tools to integrate these disciplines to understand the biochemical, physiological, and behavioral aspects of cells, tissues, and organisms.
The Biochemistry program is grounded in the study of Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, and Biology, providing the theoretical bases to understand and integrate these principles into biological processes. In this context, the program includes disciplines such as Calculus, Physics, Physical Chemistry, and three courses of Biochemistry, including Molecular Genetics. In addition to these rigorous subjects, the program incorporates disciplines that highlight the practical aspects of biochemistry, such as Analytical Chemistry, Forensic Sciences, Pathophysiology, and Pharmacology, among others.

Brion Smith '16
One of the best parts of Holy Family University is the intimate class sizes. The professors are able to focus on you as a student and not a number. I chose my major because when I initially applied to college I knew that I wanted to study science, but I wasn't sure what I wanted to do once I graduated. Biology is a broad field with a lot of flexibility with career paths which is what I was aiming for.
Biology, B.A. UG
The Biology program is designed to expose students a broad base of biological knowledge ranging from the events that occur in an individual cell to those that govern entire ecosystems.
Biology/Pre-Medicine, B.A. UG
The Biology/Pre-Medicine degree provides excellent preparation in the natural sciences and supporting non-science courses, providing students with a competitive edge as they apply for postgraduate professional schools or pursue a related career in health care or the sciences.
