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. Completion of one of BIOCHEM 4F09 A/B , 4T15 A/B  or 4Z03  is required in Level IV.
  3. A ‘research intensive’ option, available to students registered in this Specialization, offers additional laboratory research experience through completion of BIOCHEM 3R06 A/B S  and 4T15 A/B . This option is intended for students planning to pursue graduate studies or a career in research and development. Enrolment in the courses is limited and admission is by selection.
  4. Both CHEMBIO 2A03  and 2P03  are highly recommended for students interested in pursuing an undergraduate thesis or graduate studies in biophysical chemistry.
