Human Biosciences (HuBi)

Starting Fall 2023, the Biochemistry and Biochemistry (Nutrition) programs are being replaced with a new program called Human Biosciences. For a suggested sequence of courses for this new program, see the advice sheet below for all honours, majors, and minors.

Human Biosciences - Advice Sheet

Listed below are a recommended sequence of courses for those considering completing a Bachelor of Science in Human Bioscience. Information is also included for those considering completing a Human Bioscience Minor. Please note that students must complete the required prerequisite first year courses prior to declaring a major in Human Biosciences with at least a 60% overall average. These requirements must also include at least one Critical Reading and Writing (CRW) course that is an English course.

MINOR (stipulated course prerequisites also apply to a minor in Human Biosciences)

For a minor in Human Biosciences, students must complete:

a. Human Biosciences 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004.

b. Twelve credit hours in Human Biosciences courses 3xxx or 4xxx.

*Students who take CHEM 1010 in the Fall should take CHEM 1050 in the Winter and CHEM 1051 in the Spring (if offered). It is strongly recommended that CHEM 1051 be completed before beginning second year. Students must have at least 60% in CHEM 1050 to register for CHEM 2400.

** Students completing MATH 1090 in the Fall should complete MATH 1000 (or 1006) in the Winter.
