The City College offers an M.S. degree in Biochemistry. Detailed information on the M.S. curriculum is available from the CCNY Graduate Bulletin (Biochemistry program pages) The full bulletin and other application materials, tuition rates, etc. can be obtained through the CCNY admission office. Most questions can be answered by the Graduate Bulletin. If you have questions about the M.S. Biochemistry program which are not addressed in the Graduate Bulletin contact Prof. Ryan by email.
The typical applicant admitted into the CCNY Biochemistry Master’s program has successfully (B grade or higher) taken the following undergraduate courses at an accredited U.S. college, university or equivalent institution:
Two semesters each of: Freshman Chemistry; Organic Chemistry; Calculus; Physics and Biology. One or more semesters of: Biochemistry; Physical Chemistry. Less common but desirable is one semester of Analytical Chemistry or Quantitative Analysis.
Note to International Applicants:
International applicants must have all transcripts evaluated by a service approved by the Association for International Credential Evaluators (AICE). A list is available through their website (below). Choose a service that converts foreign institution credits into the U.S. undergraduate credits system, and translated into English if necessary. These forms of the transcript must be submitted in addition to the original transcript (which must, however, come directly from the college or university where the undergraduate degree was earned). Note also that the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry cannot guarantee that nine credits of Biochemistry MS course-work will be offered every semester.

M.S. Biochemistry application deadlines are May 1 and November 1.
