Vision :

Biochemistry defining part of the vision of education and research objectives in line with current requirements of Turkey, by national and international levels in the research activities and knowledge and research infrastructure that can compete with the world, capable of producing that contribute to issues related to biochemistry and solutions to problems, he has won respect at national and international level section is to make.



Mission :

To train biochemists who are open to scientific developments in biochemistry and related fields, who can combine their knowledge and creativity and who have acquired experimental skills at a high level. Conduct and publish qualified research to meet the requirements of universal science and country. Contributing to society and industry in education, research and practice.



Purpose :

The aim of this course is to educate biochemists who are ready for graduate education, sensitive to scientific research principles and ethics, who have comprehensive and sufficient knowledge about biochemistry and the relationship between biochemistry and other sciences, and who have scientific thinking that can meet the needs of biochemistry in today's science and technology age.



Language of Program :

Turkish



Definition of Program :

The Department of Biochemistry was established under the Faculty of Science of Selcuk University on September 3, 2013 and numbered 75850160-101-03.01-6615.



Admission and Registration Requirements :

1) The person who wishes to register to the Department of Biochemistry is required to: (a) be a high school or high school equivalent vocational school graduate; (c) to bring the documents specified in the Guidance on Measurement, Selection and Placement Center (OSYM) for registration; not being registered in the open education or distance education associate degree program, which also has another formal or quota limitation for the person who is entitled to enroll in the undergraduate program. (2) The original of the requested documents or a copy approved by the University shall be accepted.

However, applicants who are not able to apply for their own excuses may register through their representatives or legal representatives holding a notary power of attorney. (3) Students may register through the e-government gate.



Recognition of Previous Education :

Students studying at the Biochemistry Department of Selçuk University may be exempt from certain courses within the framework of certain regulations. If the content of the course taken in another institution is in accordance with the content of the course given in Selçuk University Biochemistry Department and approved by the related faculty executive board, the student may be exempted from this course.



Graduation Requirements :

In order to successfully complete the program, students are required to pass all the 240 ECTS compulsory and elective courses and obtain a minimum GPA of 2.0 out of 4.00.



Employment Oppurtunities :

Biochemists investigate the molecular meaning of life based on the relationship between molecular structure and function. Modern biochemistry is the result of the application of chemical techniques to biological problems. Although biochemistry combines biology and chemistry in many ways, it is difficult to limit some subjects to biochemistry since it is a constantly expanding field. Molecular biology, for example, is an important branch of biochemistry but is often considered a separate discipline. Biochemists use molecular methods to explain biological processes, while other biological scientists study the combined functions of organs and species identified by ecosystems. The basis of the difference that distinguishes biochemistry from other basic disciplines such as physiology and ecology lies here. Some important areas of modern biochemistry include structural biology, enzyme mechanisms, signal transduction, gene expression and bioinformatics.
