Notes Applicable to all Honours Biochemistry Programs

  1. In addition to the Honours Biochemistry program, the Department offers a Specialization in Biomedical Research. The Honours program has a specified set of basic requirements and a wide choice of electives (including those from outside the Faculty of Science), allowing for interdisciplinary studies or the opportunity to complete a Minor in another subject. Alternatively, students may wish to apply to the Biomedical Research Specialization which is strongly recommended for students intending to pursue graduate studies.
  2. Admission to all Biochemistry programs is limited. Selection is based on academic achievement but requires, as a minimum, completion of the Level I requirements listed below.
  3. Transfer between programs is possible at any time, subject to satisfying the admission requirements and availability of space.
  4. Students considering graduate studies in Biochemistry are recommended to complete one of BIOCHEM 4F09 A/B  or 4T15 A/B .
