Biochemistry studies the molecules and processes that underpin life by working at the interface between biology and chemistry, explaining biological processes at the molecular level and beyond to understand the world around us.
Students in the BIOC program may also be interested in studying Biological and Pharmaceutical Chemistry, Chemical Physics, Biomedical Toxicology, Microbiology, Molecular Biology and Genetics, or other majors.
Gain Valuable Experience Through Co-op
Biochemistry co-op is a four- and half-year program, which includes four work terms and helps students prepare for the workforce and provides a toolkit of skills and experience for future resume building.
Every University had classes and sports teams, but Guelph was a home for me. My favourite course so far has been Physics *1300, the intro to Physics class. The TA's were helpful and the Prof was great.
