Suzanne Rudnick

Professor, Chemistry & Biochemistry

I specialize in Biochemistry, and Chemistry and Biochemistry for non-science majors. I spend most of my teaching time in classes designed for non-science majors, including students who are majoring in the arts, education, or business. However, I also teach the two-semester introductory biochemistry class, so if you are a biochemistry major, I will be your biochemistry teacher.
