Biochemistry (BS/MS)

The BS/MS program in Biochemistry allows currently Loyola University Chicago undergraduate students to obtain both a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in a compressed time period. This program structure is beneficial for those planning to take a gap year between undergraduate graduation, medical school, dental school, or other higher education.  The research experience and courses with faculty you know and love allow you to build the references that will help you successfully transition to your next step. Your coursework keeps your chemical intuition sharp when preparing for admissions tests.

Students complete the bachelor's degree, but also take two graduate courses as undergraduates their senior year that count toward both their Bachelor’s and Master’s degree. By doing so, the 6 additional graduate courses can be finished in a single year for this 4+1 program.
