Our faculty are at the heart of student success.
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.
Chemistry, Minor UG
The minor in Chemistry includes a strong foundation in chemical principles and provides opportunities for advanced study that can be customized to address a student’s particular interests or support career goals, such as chemistry-related employment or admission into pre-professional programs.
Natural Sciences, Minor UG
The Minor in the Natural Sciences prepares the Holy Family student to think globally and will give the student the opportunity to experience and to explore the breadth of the Natural Sciences. Essential biological and chemical principles of nature will be presented as an interplay between chemical and physical Laws and their impact upon both living and nonliving systems. This minor is particularly useful for education majors who want to teach middle level science courses.
