Course Summary

Biochemistry is a combination of the core discipline of chemistry – the study of matter and how it can combine into different substances – and its application to life and life processes. Biochemistry looks at the way atoms combine to become the tissues, fuels and wastes of life, and how the unique properties of each makes the complexity of life possible.

The BSc in Biochemistry is heavily research-based. You’ll be able to conduct your own research projects under faculty supervision, and will have access to summer programs offering experience in a research assistant role.

Throughout the program you’ll explore many different scientific disciplines, including Mathematics, Environmental Science, Physics, Chemistry and Biology. You’ll also spend a great deal of time in the lab – you’ll graduate with between 600 and 1200 hours of actual laboratory experience under your belt, which will make you extremely attractive to employers in a wide range of industries.

If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.

Course Outline

This degree program is typically delivered over 4 years of full time study.

Biochemistry Modules Include:

  • Advanced Metabolism
  • Biochemical Ecology
  • Current Advances in Biochemistry
  • Environmental Physiology And Biochemistry of Animals
  • Enzymology and Metabolism
  • Experiential Biochemistry
  • Honours Thesis
  • Independent Study in Biochemistry I
  • Independent Study in Biochemistry II
  • Inorganic Chemistry: Bioinorganic
  • Introductory Biochemistry
  • Lipid and Membrane Biochemistry
  • Molecular Analyses
  • Molecular Immunology
  • Nucleic Acids: Structures, Mechanisms And Regulations
  • Organic Chemistry: Bioorganic
  • Protein Biochemistry
  • Signal Transduction
  • Special Topic in Biochemistry I
  • Special Topic in Biochemistry II
  • Special Topic in Biochemistry III
  • Special Topic in Biochemistry IV
  • Virology

At higher levels of study, much of your class load will be taken up with elective modules in one or more specialist sub-fields. You could build up a highly marketable speciality in animal physiology, animal, bacterial, and plant viruses, biochemical ecology, lipids and membranes, the molecular structure of the immune system, nucleic acids, protein structures and function or signal transduction.

Learning And Teaching

Mount Allison University uses a range of both standard and quite innovative teaching methods. Depending on the subject matter in question, these might include everything from formal lectures, interactive tutorials and skills sessions to laboratory or studio work and seminar style classes.

The Biochemistry program includes special content designed to help prepare you for a career in research or technical laboratory practice, as well as the opportunity to specialise your course of study.

Career Possibilities

Not only will you gain the academic and scientific skills you’d need to take your education to the MSc level, you’ll have a wide range of general skills which could lead to a career in a completely unrelated field.

Mount Allison’s Biochemistry graduates have become genetics researchers, pharmacologists, pharmacists, agricultural biochemists, atmospheric or environmental biochemists, public health nutritionists and dieticians, food or nutritional biochemists, forensic scientists, biological oceanographers, medical doctors, dentists and public or global health administrators.

Entry & Credit

Successful completion will result in a 4 year BSc degree.

Applicants must typically have completed a university preparatory program at a senior secondary school, or the international equivalent. They should be able to show average marks of at least 65%.

All classes are taught in English unless otherwise noted, and international students will be required to show proficiency in English by scoring well on an approved test.
