Fall 2012 – Summer 2013
Three departments offer the Honours program in Immunology: Biochemistry, Microbiology and Immunology, and Physiology, combining elements of each. The program is a demanding one, which will prepare the student for graduate work in immunology.
This program is comprised of a core of 48 credits in basic science courses in cell and molecular biology, microbiology, biochemistry, and physiology. An additional 27 complementary credits may be selected from a broad selection of science courses. The remaining 13 credits are free electives, enabling the student to explore related science disciplines. Finally, an undergraduate research project, seminar, and thesis provides an opportunity to directly experience research work in a laboratory with a professor of immunology.
Students who do not maintain Honours standing must transfer their registration to a program in one of the three participating departments.
