Biological and Pharmaceutical Chemistry

Regular and Co-op

An honours degree in Biological and Pharmaceutical Chemistry will provide an opportunity to gain a solid knowledge base in both chemistry and biology with an option to direct your studies towards learning the principles and methods related to pharmaceuticals. This major will assist you in exploring biological processes at a molecular level using the insight of a chemistry framework.  If you're looking for a career in the pharmaceutical industry (e.g. the design and synthesis of new pharmaceutical products, modelling and simulation of drug properties, method development and analyses of drugs, vaccines and other biological molecules), or if you're planning further studies in the medical and health sectors (Medical School, Dental School, Pharmacy School, etc.), then this major is well suited to you. This degree can be taken with a co-op option, giving you valuable industrial experience.
