Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry (4 years)

Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry (4 years)

Description

Biochemistry is the branch of science concerned with the chemistry of biomolecules (proteins, carbohydrates, lipids and nucleic acids) and chemical processes of life. It is multidisciplinary, standing at the crossroads between the physical sciences (chemistry and physics) and the life sciences (botany, zoology, microbiology, and genetics). The BS Biochemistry program offers students the understanding of the structure and function of biomolecules, studying the way these molecules are organized, and the interactions that take place among them in order to maintain life processes.

This four-year pre-medicine program equips the students with the fundamental principles and theories, as well as applications in research and industry.

The curriculum provides a balanced chemical, biological and computational components with excellent training in the following areas of biochemistry:

    • Analytical and Physical Chemistry
    • Biochemical Techniques in Protein, Carbohydrate, Lipid, and Nucleic Acid Chemistry
    • Bioinformatics or Computational Biology
    • Physical Biochemistry
    • Nutritional and Enzyme Biochemistry
    • Recombinant DNA and Transformation Biotechnology
    • Pharmacology
    • Plant Biochemistry and Biotechnology
    • Intermediary Metabolism
    • Biochemical Principles in Immunology, Virology and Cancer

LIFELONG LEARNER 

  • Engage in reflective practice to ensure disciplinal relevance and professional development. 
  • Exhibit preparedness and interest for continuous upgrading of competencies required by the profession or area of specialization. 
  • Manifest fidelity to the teachings of Christ, mediated by the Catholic Church, in the continuous deepening of faith and spirituality in dealing with new life situations and challenges. 

At the end of the program, the student will:

  1. demonstrate creative application of concepts and methods geared toward proficiency in the practice of biochemistry in the allied health, biological, and environmental sciences;
  2. exemplify cooperative leadership that promotes good work ethics in the practice of one’s profession;
  3. generate innovative ideas and practical solutions by utilizing logical and systematic methods in biochemistry and applying these to real-life situations;
  4. apply through research and innovation new and existing knowledge in biochemistry to the development of concepts and products beneficial to the society;
  5. exhibit Catholic values and moral principles true to the Thomasian ideals as biochemists contributing to the improvement of the quality of life;
  6. demonstrate effective competencies in communication and relational skills through collaborations, utilizing available information technologies, in expressing concepts and principles in biochemistry; and
  7. apply the concepts, principles, and techniques of Biochemistry in intellectual discourse and collaborative research of various disciplines, guided by the Thomasian values, to address global needs and challenges.
