Choose from a diverse set of courses to support all biochemistry specializations.
Please see the Biochemistry Graduate Program Handbook for more information.
The graduate courses offered by the Department cover a broad range of biochemistry. In addition, courses in other departments/programs, notably Biology, Chemistry, Medical Sciences, Physics and Astronomy, and Chemical Biology may be allowed for graduate credit. Students must consult with their supervisor when selecting courses. The courses are subsequently approved by our Graduate Admissions Committee.
Permission to Register in a Course
Enrolment in all courses is subject to permission from the respective departments. Lisa Kush (kushL@mcmaster.ca) is the Biochemistry and Biomedical Sciences Department contact. Students are to contact outside departments directly to obtain permission to enrol in non-Biochemistry courses. Class sizes are usually small for graduate courses (some programs allow no more than 10 students to enrol) so it is important that students indicate their interests early.
*Note: 700 Level chemistry courses equal one-quarter credit.
