A versatile major

Career Possibilities

Majoring in biochemistry opens up numerous career doors. A biochemistry degree from Lakeland will prepare you for medical school or pharmaceutical school because your courses will meet the prerequisites for professional school acceptance.

If you’d prefer to go directly into the workforce, your Lakeland University Biochemistry Bachelor of Science Degree – and the plentiful internship opportunities with local companies – will make you an exceptionally attractive candidate for entry-level positions involving chemistry.

And if you’d prefer to enter graduate school and focus on earning a Ph.D. or Doctorate in Biochemistry, that path is wide open as well. One former Lakeland University student is a Ph.D. candidate in biophysics at prestigious Johns Hopkins University. Another is a Ph.D. candidate in physical chemistry at the University of Michigan.
