Honours Biochemistry (B.Sc.)


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

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. 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 are currently enrolled in the Honours Biochemistry (B.Sc.) program 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.

Program Notes


  1. Registration in an Honours Biochemistry program does not guarantee access to all courses. Some courses have program restrictions. There are Level II and III prerequisites for many Level III and IV courses. The prerequisites should be considered when choosing Level II and III courses.
  2. Both CHEMBIO 2A03  and 2P03  are highly recommended for students interested in pursuing an undergraduate thesis or graduate studies in biophysical chemistry.
  3. Students who do not complete a research, thesis, or advanced biochemistry laboratory course (BIOCHEM 3A03 , 3LA3 , 3R06 A/B S , 4F09 A/B , 4T15 A/B , 4Z03 ) must complete BIOCHEM 4C03 .
  4. Students who entered the program prior to September 2022 can use BIOCHEM 3LA3  towards the Biochemistry Course List.
  5. Students may take a maximum of 9 units of project/thesis courses in Level III. Students may take a maximum of 18 units of project/thesis courses in Level IV.
