About Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, BSc, BSc (Hons), MSc - at University of Northern British Columbia (UNBC)

Majors begin their UNBC studies with a broad set of courses in the natural sciences. In the second year, biochemistry is introduced, leading to third year explorations of DNA, the blueprint of life, proteins, the machines that make our bodies work, and a wide range of other molecular topics. Finally, your degree culminates in the fourth year with courses that let you see why BCMB is the largest and most dynamic scientific discipline. Topics include oncology, the evolution of life, advanced genetics, and much more.

With its strong emphasis on analytical skills, the BCMB major is an excellent launching point for a variety of science-based careers or or further academic study in our Masters program in Mathematical, Computer, Physical and Molecular Sciences with a thesis or project option.

The BCMB major also includes extensive training in practical laboratory skills, such as DNA fingerprinting, which are essential for careers in the natural sciences, criminal forensics, laboratory technician programs, and a variety of industries.

One of the outstanding features of the BCMB program is the opportunity to work in research labs from your first day on campus. In contrast to larger universities, where it is often difficult for undergraduates to even talk to professors, UNBC's faculty welcome undergraduates to become involved in their research. 

Take your learning to the next level with our Honours degree.
