Although no biochemistry courses are open to first-year students, the prerequisites for courses leading to a degree in biochemistry require early enrollment in introductory chemistry. The first two years of the biochemistry curriculum have much in common with the chemistry program. Students who wish to keep open the option of majoring in chemistry or biochemistry are strongly urged to take CHEM 101/101L or 111/111L and the appropriate mathematics course (MATH 111 or 112) during their first semester at Colgate. See the Chemistry department description for details of CHEM 101/101L and 111/111L.
