Undergraduate programs in biochemistry

A major role of the Biochemistry Program is to shepherd our undergraduate programs in biochemistry. The Biochemistry Academic plan is offered in both regular and co-op form ​of study. After second year a Biotechnology Option may be added to your plan.

The Biochemistry Program regularly reviews the undergraduate curriculum in biochemistry to keep it pedagogically relevant. The program also coordinates undergraduate advising in the biochemistry programs.
