The Biochemistry Program at Muhlenberg College offers a curriculum that integrates classroom and laboratory-based learning in the interdisciplinary study of living systems at the molecular level. Students explore the interface of chemistry and biology, negotiating distinct yet complementary modes of inquiry.

Our program asks students to confront the implicit responsibilities as well as the societal and ethical implications of research, critically engage with scientific information and develop the reasoning skills necessary to navigate rapidly changing landscapes of knowledge. We value student-faculty collaborative research and encourage the presentation and publication of student work.

In these ways and through supporting students pursuing an additional major/minor(s), studying abroad and engaging in the community, we encourage our students to fully realize the goals of a liberal arts education. Our students can graduate with ACS certification and are poised for a variety of careers, graduate research or professional study.
