Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs (by Degree) and Minors

Entry last available in September 2022.

Effective September 2022, all Honours Biochemistry programs are administered by the Faculty of Health Sciences and offered as a Bachelor of Health Sciences (B.H.Sc.) degree. Level I students interested in this program will have the choice to apply for either the B.Sc. or B.H.Sc. Students interested in the B.H.Sc. should refer to the Honours Biochemistry (B.H.Sc.) program in the Faculty of Health Sciences section of this Calendar.

Students who enrolled in the Honours Biochemistry (B.Sc.) program prior to September 2022 and are not scheduled to graduate in June 2022, are given the choice to remain in that program or transfer into Honours Biochemistry (B.H.Sc.).  Students who choose to remain in Honours Biochemistry (B.Sc.) will graduate at a Faculty of Science convocation and students who transfer to Honours Biochemistry (B.H.Sc.) will graduate at a Faculty of Health Sciences convocation.

Admission


Enrolment in this program is limited and possession of the published minimum requirements does not guarantee admission. Admission is by selection but requires, as a minimum, completion of any Level I program with a Grade Point Average of at least 5.0 including:
