Program Information

School:Carleton University
Faculty:Faculty of Science
Degree:Bachelor
Field of Study:Biochemistry
Description:The science of biochemistry seeks to understand how organisms function by investigating enzyme reactions, mechanisms of gene regulation, chemical signaling pathways, and cellular structure at the molecular level. Biochemists study how animals, plants and bacteria make use of energy to grow, compete with other organisms and reproduce. Many of the biochemist’s findings are of direct relevance to humanity—they help us understand and treat disease, improve food production and find new techniques to produce valuable products such as vitamins and antibiotics.

Biochemistry programs are excellent training options for entry into medicine and other health sciences professional programs.

Honours programs are offered in Biochemistry, Computational Biochemistry, and the combined program in Biotechnology and Biochemistry. A four-year Major program in Biochemistry is also offered.
