    Course Summary

    Brock University’s BSc in Biochemistry is delivered jointly by the Departments of Chemistry and Biological Science. You’ll have your choice of several different degree pathways, including a 4 year Honours BSc, an 4 year BSc with a Major in Biochemistry a 3 year BA Pass Degree and a range of 20 credit programs designed to prepare you for admission to a professional or advanced degree program at Brock or elsewhere.

    Biochemistry is the study of life at the chemical and molecular levels. It is a great choice for anyone who has the desire to learn how molecules come together to form life.

    You’ll study molecular biology, cell biology and chemistry. In your final years, you’ll be able to select a specialty for yourself, choosing from Chemistry or Biology. Depending on your choice, you’ll take modules in subjects like bio-organic or biophysical chemistry, molecular genetics, information flow, macromolecular structures, enzyme and protein action, energy flow and metabolism, and more.

    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.
