Chemistry is one of the central physical sciences. As a Chemistry Major, you will explore matter at its most basic—as a collection of atoms.
To earn the equivalent of a minor in Chemistry, you must complete four broad introductory-level courses as well as two chemistry electives of your choice.
7.00x is an introductory level biology course.
3.091x explains chemical principles by examination of the properties of materials.
This course will teach you the important role that metal ions play in key biological processes. You will learn that many biological functions are performed at the cellular level by metal ions that are incorporated into the activation sites of proteins and enzymes.
Biochemistry is the study of the chemical processes and compounds, such as cellular makeup, that bring about life in organisms. It is a combination of multiple science fields; you can think of it as general and cell biology coupled with organic and general chemistry.
