Honours program

The Honours program in Biochemistry combines the substantial background given by the Major program with a challenging opportunity to carry out laboratory research projects in the U3 year. These courses provide students with research experience under the supervision of a professor in the Department.


The Department of Biochemistry is part of the Faculty of Science and as such, offers programs leading to the degree of BSc.
