This minor is available to students registered in a 120 credit hour Bachelor of Applied Computer Science, Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Commerce, Bachelor of Community Design, Bachelor of Computer Science, Bachelor of Informatics, Bachelor of Management, Bachelor of Music, Bachelor of Science or Bachelor of Science (Medical Sciences) program.


  • A minimum of 18 credit hours in Biochemistry (BIOC) courses at the 2000 level or higher to a maximum of 36 credit hours.

Please note that there are prerequisite requirements for entry into upper level Biochemistry (BIOC) courses. Some non-BIOC courses such as BIOL 2020.03: Cell Biology, BIOL 2030.03: Genetics and Molecular Biology, CHEM 2401.03: Introductory Organic Chemistry: Structure, Concepts of Mechanisms and Spectroscopy and CHEM 2402.03: Introductory Organic Chemistry: Reactivity of Functional Groups are required for the Biochemistry and Molecular Biology degree programs. These non-BIOC courses cannot be counted as part of the 18 credits hours in BIOC required for a minor.
