The Honours Specializations indicated below (*) and the Specialization in Biochemistry may only be completed within the BMSc Program. The Major in Biochemistry, when combined with another Major offered by one of the Basic Medical Science departments or the Major in Interdisciplinary Studies (IMS), may only be completed within the BMSc Program (BMSc Honours or BMSc degree).

Students do not register in modules leading to a BMSc degree until they are admitted to Year 3 of the BMSc Program. For more information, see BMSc PROGRAM and MODULES OFFERED IN THE BMSc PROGRAM.

A Major module in Biochemistry can either be taken alone or combined with modules from other faculties to earn degrees such as BSc, BHSc or BA degrees.  For example, a student may obtain a BSc(Honours) degree with a Major in Biochemistry and a Major chosen from either the Faculty of Science or another faculty. Alternatively, a student may elect to pursue a 4-year BSc degree with a Major in Biochemistry.
