Biochemistry is the 53rd most popular degree in America, with 9,135 students receiving their bachelors degree last year. It just beat out #54 Information Science, and narrowly lost to #52 Management Information Systems.

The degree is offered at a total of 558 colleges across the nation, and is the 35th most widely offered degree. Given that biochemistry is offered at 57% of the Top 100 Best Colleges in America, you can be sure this is a critical degree and the skillsets acquired are likely to last for a long time.

It is also worth noting that 36% of colleges offering biochemistry are public making it a relatively inaccessible field.

The far west produces the most biochemistry graduates, largely led by University of California-Los Angeles, while it’s the Pacific-12 Conference that leads conference totals. As far as states, California ranks highest, with particular help from University of California-Los Angeles and University of California-Riverside.

All that being said, no individual school produces more biochemistry graduates than University of Alaska Fairbanks, which graduated 442 students last year alone. Although size is critical, another important factor to consider is the program’s density (the percent of all students that study biochemistry). More students studied biochemistry as a percentage of total students at Southern Virginia University than any other college.
