Biochemistry arose from the fields of biology and chemistry to investigate biological molecules and understand how their interactions result in living systems. In today's society, understanding in this discipline is essential for informed, critical thinking about many significant issues in science, health and public policy. Biochemistry is an ideal interdisciplinary major for students who want to get a broad scientific foundation, pursue a career in biochemistry or enter the health professions. Smith's biochemistry program has been awarded full accreditation by the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology (ASBMB)—one of approximately 60 colleges and universities in the country to receive this accreditation, and the only biochemistry program in the Five Colleges to have this distinction.
