B.Sc. Biochemistry (Pokhara University)

The Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry is designed to impart the knowledge and understanding of the Molecular Basis of life in animals and plants. The multidisciplinary program focuses on composition and function of molecules and their interplay to form the phenomenon of life. It mostly looks at the process of translating this interplay into basic energy transduction, metabolism, defense and physical reaction for purpose of development & growth.

Bachelor of Science in Bio-Chemistry program offered by the Pokhara University is a four-year course that is further divided into eight semesters. In order to complete this program successfully, students need to complete 145 credit hours of full-time study. The program intends to equip the students with the theoretical concept and practical training in the subjects such as Pure & Applied Field of Bio-chemistry with a solid foundation in Biotechnology, Immunology, Molecular Biology, Clinical Micro-biology and  Human Anatomy and Physiology.  Prior to graduation, students need to submit a thesis.

Universal Science College is the only college affiliated with Pokhara University that is offering the Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry. It is located in Maitidevi, Kathmandu.
