Biochemistry has its roots in biology, chemistry and physics and draws strong impulses from medicine. Using chemical and molecular biological methods, she researches the life processes in organisms, examines the chemical and physico-chemical processes in cells and analyzes their control and organization. The focus is on signal transduction, metabolism, protein functions including enzymology as well as molecular genetics and genetic engineering. Biochemical research results are of particular importance for molecular medicine, biotechnology and bioprocess engineering.

Program Structure

The mono bachelor's degree includes the core subject with the subjects chemistry, mathematics and physics, biology and biochemistry and the general vocational preparation study area.

The general vocational preparation study area (ABV) comprises the theory of science and bioethics, professional practice, an internship and the following areas of competence: foreign languages, information and media competence, gender and diversity competence, organizational and management competence, personal and socio-communicative competence and subject-related additional qualifications, in which additional practical professional knowledge and skills are imparted. Aims, content and structure of the general vocational preparation study area are regulated in a separate ABV study and examination regulations.

At the end of the course, the exemplary deepening and differentiation of a selected field of study takes place through the independent development of a scientific problem from the field of biochemistry (Bachelor thesis).

The course regulations regulate the structure and process of the course. It contains detailed descriptions of the content and qualification goals of each individual module and an exemplary course plan. The examination regulations define the type and requirements of the module examinations. In the regulations, the credit points (CP) for each module or event as well as the workload in hours for the entire course are specified.

Career Prospects

Bachelor graduates have scientific knowledge and practical skills that qualify them for a job or a postgraduate course.

After completing their studies, biochemists can work in research and teaching at universities, research institutes and in the field of appraisers and patents. In addition, there are often employment relationships in industry, for example in biotechnology, in the chemical and pharmaceutical industries, in the food industry. Further employment opportunities arise after further qualification in the field of theoretical services (e.g. in advising companies, in the patent system or in the journalistic field).

A qualifying master’s degree and, as a rule, a doctorate are prerequisites for managerial positions or employment in research and teaching.
