Course Summary

Biochemistry is a fascinating and wide-ranging field of study. Biochemists explore the chemical interactions which define living things, at scales ranging from the individual molecule, the whole organism, and up to the environment as a whole. Biochemistry offers many distinct specialisations and interdisciplinary niches as well.

 A BSc in Biochemistry from the University of Winnipeg leans heavily on the interdisciplinary approach, using content derived from Microbiology, Genetics, Cell Biology and of course both Organic and Inorganic Chemistry to give students a deep understanding of the molecular structures that make up all life. They will also gain a great deal of laboratory experience and an understanding of common academic and industrial lab procedures.  

This degree program can be taken as a 3 year BSc, a 4 year BSc, a 3 year BSc with a Business focus, a 4 year BSc with a Business focus, or as a 4 year Honours BSc suitable for progression into graduate level studies.

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.
