Course Summary

A BSc in Biochemistry from the University of Manitoba will give you a deep understanding of both Microbiology and Chemistry, as well as a detailed theoretical understanding of the way the two combine. Of course, you’ll gain the practical laboratory skills you’ll need to succeed in a wide range of industrial or research roles. You’ll also learn the critical thinking and analysis skills you’ll need to succeed in nearly any other field. 

Biochemistry is an incredibly complex field of study, with many highly distinct specialisations and niche industries. It looks at the chemical reactions and interactions which underlie all living things. It seeks to understand how individual molecules are relevant to the organism as a whole, as well as how they interact as discrete units. 

This degree program can be taken as a 4 year Major, a 4 year Honours Program, or a 4 year program with an additional year in an Honours or Major Co-op. 

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.

Learning And Teaching

University of Manitoba relies in many standard teaching methods, including formal lectures, interactive tutorials and skills sessions and seminar style classes. It is also a major research university, and you will have plenty of opportunities to participate in that research tradition first hand, either through senior year research projects or USRA Research Awards. 

The Biochemistry program in particular also includes intensive laboratory skills sessions and a grounding in many important research and testing techniques. 

Career Possibilities

Many U of M Biochemistry graduates found enviable careers in Industrial Microbiology/Chemistry (producing the enzymes, antibodies, vaccines, antibiotics, bioethanol and other products other industries demand), in Public Health functions or as Researchers of various kinds. Not only will you have highly in-demand laboratory skills, you’ll have a wide range of general skills which could lead to a career anywhere in the life sciences or in a completely unrelated field.

Entry & Credit

Successful completion will result in a 4-5 year BSc degree.

Applicants must typically have completed a university preparatory program at a senior secondary school, or the international equivalent. They should not have completed more than 24 hours of post-secondary education.

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.
