The Bradley Advantage

The five-year biochemistry program sharpens your research abilities as you gain deeper knowledge of the science. As a participant in the integrated program, you spend at least three summers working on a faculty-mentored research project. You begin graduate-level courses during your third year, which also is when you begin graduate thesis research.

Successful Outcomes

Bradley’s five-year biochemistry program successfully prepares you to directly enter the workforce or graduate school. In recent years, all students found jobs or continued their education within six months of graduation. They're working at the U.S. Department of Agriculture, ScribeAmerica and Thermo Fisher Scientific. Others are attending graduate school at institutions such as the University of North Carolina, University of Wisconsin and Northwestern University.
