Biochemistry is one of the branches of chemistry, which subject is the molecular basis of life and chemical reactions of living organisms. Biochemistry has a deep connection with Molecular Biology. The object of Biochemistry is complex biological molecules, for example, proteins, nucleic acids, carbohydrates and lipids, and their reaction to other organic and inorganic compounds.
A study program in Biochemistry is usually highly practical and include one or several internships. A lot of universities also encourage students to spend a year studying abroad.
A degree in Biochemistry and the research work during the last year of education prepares graduates to a work in research area. Graduates can start a career as biochemistry scientists or analytical chemists. Graduates can also find a job in healthcare field and work as clinical bioscientists. For many career paths a higher degree (Masters or PhD) is strongly required, but graduates holding a Bachelor degree in Biochemistry can also find a perspective job in scientific and nonscientific areas.
