The Biochemistry Certificate program is intended primarily for postbaccalaureate or non-degree-seeking students as recognition of excellence in their focused interdisciplinary study in biochemistry.  However, degree-seeking students are also eligible.  The Certificate is awarded by the University of Colorado Denver Chemistry Department beginning in the Fall of 2013. The program is an interdisciplinary concentration of studies in chemistry, biology, and/or physics focusing on the molecular processes of life.  Interested students should contact a Chemistry advisor, and must demonstrate completion of all prerequisites with a grade of C or better in each in order to be admitted into the Certificate program.  Students must also notify their Chemistry advisor upon completion of all requirements, in order for the Certificate to be awarded and appear on the UCD transcript.


Requirements for the Biochemistry CERTIFICATE:

A grade of C (2.0, not C-) or better in each of the Prerequisites is required, although these courses do not have to be completed at CU Denver.  The Required Courses including electives must be completed at CU Denver with a grade of C (2.0, not C-) or better in each class, and a minimum GPA of 2.7 among the Required Courses including electives counted toward the Certificate.


Students with specific questions concerning the Biochemistry Certificate not addressed in this document should contact a Chemistry Advisor.
