Course Overview

The bachelor’s degree course in Biochemistry is an undergraduate programme of Oduduwa University, which studies chemical processes in living organisms. The four-year programme covers bio-organic chemistry, biophysical chemistry, Human Physiology, Microbiology and Virology, Basic Immunology and Enzymology. It also looks into the study of structure and function of cellular components such as proteins, carbohydrates and lipids. Other components are nucleic acids and biomolecules involved in biological processes such as growth, metabolism, reproduction and heredity. Biochemistry also touches on the effects of the environment on living organisms, and their biological processes.

Biochemists understand the fundamentals of the human body, core functionalities and elements that influence well-being. They usually find roles in medical and life science roles, offering their knowledge of chemical processes in the analysis of physiological and anatomical events to deduce irregularities or recommend particular action steps. Yu can get to learn the technical skills required on the field by taking the course at the Oduduwa University.

By completing the programme, you will be able to apply your knowledge of chemical processes on any role where it is required.
