BSc Honours in Biochemistry
An Honours in Biochemistry program consists of completion of the requirements of the Specialization in Biochemistry, with the election of CHEM 450 as the senior research project.
To enter an Honours program, students must apply to one of the Department Honours Advisors, after they have completed 30 credits at Concordia, (but not requiring fewer than 30 credits to graduate).
To enter and remain in the Honours program, a student must maintain an average of "B+" in all courses of the Honours component of the program, have no grade less than a C (2.0) in any core or elective course, and maintain a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.3 (B+). Honours students are encouraged to attend departmental seminars.
The Order of Chemists of Québec has fully accredited the curriculum of the B.Sc. Honours in Chemistry. Upon satisfactory completion of this program, a graduate is eligible for membership in the Order. Students are responsible for satisfying their particular degree requirements. A working knowledge of French is required. (The Order of Chemists of Québec regulates the practice of both chemists and biochemists in Québec.)
See Section 31.003 of the Undergraduate Calendar.
NOTE: Students must meet the University regulations concerning the Honours degree (Section 31.003 of the University Calendar). Honours students in second year and beyond are encouraged to attend departmental seminars.
