Being a interdisciplinary program, Biochemistry involves the faculty, laboratories, and courses of other science departments at Villanova.

The BS degree in Biochemistry requires extensive study in Biochemistry, Chemistry, and Biology. At the same time, students also have some flexibility in the program. A variety of different introductory courses are acceptable towards the degree, allowing interested students to approach the degree with different backgrounds and interests.

Participating Departments

Our courses draw from four departments: Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics and Physics. Students should speak with their advisor about permitted substitutions for the Biochemistry degree requirements and permitted electives.

For more information about the Program in Biochemistry, please contact one of the program co-directors: James Wilson, PhD, or Jennifer Palenchar, PhD.
