Welcome to Undergraduate Education

UndergraduatesThe Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology serves students in the Undergraduate Medical Education Program, Biomedical Sciences Graduate Program, and the Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Undergraduate Program.

Our undergraduate Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Program is the only undergraduate biochemistry program in the nation housed in a School of Medicine and trains a wealth of pre-professional students, including pre-med, pre-pharmacy, pre-dental, as well as students from the UNM Combined BA/MD Program.

The Biochemistry major of the College of Arts & Sciences at the University of New Mexico is located in this department. Both the BA and BS degrees are available. To major in Biochemistry students first need to be accepted into the College of Arts and Sciences. For more information contact the Undergraduate Program Director.
