Calendar Changes 2018-2019

For 2nd year and possibly some 3rd year Biochemistry and Biochemistry(Nutrition) students

I have just completed first year in Winter 2018 and I am beginning my second year in the Biochemistry or Biochemistry(Nutrition) program. What will the introduction of the new Biochemistry laboratory course and the renumbering of Biochemistry 2101 mean to me?

If you are registering for Chemistry 2400 or Chemistry 2440 for Fall 2018, it is highly recommended that you register for Biochemistry 2901 Biochemistry Laboratory to stay on track in your program.

For Winter 2019 you will register for Biochemistry 2201 instead of Biochemistry 2101.

I would have been eligible to register for Biochemistry 2101 in Fall 2018. What do I do now since Biochemistry 2101 is no longer offered?

You will now be required to complete both Biochemistry 2201 Introduction to Biochemistry and Biochemistry 2901 Biochemistry Laboratory in your program. You should register for both in Fall 2018.

How will the changes to required courses in my program affect me now and in future semesters?

The changes we are making in course requirements should fall in place for you as you move through your program. Use advice sheets to help you make course selections.

We have some changes coming in the next calendar year that would be helpful for you to be aware of when reading through our program changes in (3) above. In Fall 2019 we will be removing the laboratory portion from two of our courses : Biochemistry 3106 Metabolism and 3107 Nucleic Acid Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. The lecture only courses will be renumbered as Biochemistry 3206 Metabolism and 3207 Nucleic Acid Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. Concurrently we will be introducing two new laboratory courses: 3906 Nutritional Biochemistry and Metabolism Laboratory (beginning Winter 2020) and 3907 Molecular Biology Laboratory (beginning Fall 2019).

If you have any questions or any of these changes cause program difficulties when you register please contact us at bcadvice@mun.ca.

For 3rd or 4th year Biochemistry and Biochemistry(Nutrition) students

I have already completed Biochemistry 2101, so how will the introduction of a new Biochemistry laboratory course and the renumbering of Biochemistry 2101 affect me?

If you have successfully completed Biochemistry 2101, there will be no effect to you.

How will the changes to required courses in existing Biochemistry programs affect me?

If you have successfully completed Biochemistry 2101, these changes will not impact you and you can continue to follow the university calendar regulations that you have been following all along. More specifically you can follow the calendar in effect when you first took a 2000 level Biochemistry course, or any subsequent calendar.

Biology Students

I am majoring in a Biology program and I have already completed Biochemistry 2101. How will the introduction of a new Biochemistry laboratory course (Biochemistry 2901) and the renumbering of Biochemistry 2101 (to Biochemistry 2201) affect me?

If you have successfully completed Biochemistry 2101, you will not need to do Biochemistry 2201 or 2901. There will be no change to your program.

I am majoring in a Biology program and I have not yet completed Biochemistry 2101. How will the introduction of a new Biochemistry laboratory course (Biochemistry 2901) and the renumbering of Biochemistry 2101 (to Biochemistry 2201) affect me?

If you have not completed Biochemistry 2101 you will now need to complete Biochemistry 2201. Biochemistry 2901 will NOT be required in your program unless you are pursuing the Biochemistry and Cell Biology Joint Honours program.

If you are pursuing a Joint Honours Degree in Biochemistry and Cell Biology you will now need to complete both Biochemistry 2201 and 2901. If you are doing this Joint Honours Degree and have questions about our program changes, please contact us at bcadvice@mun.ca.

If you have any questions or any of this causes any program difficulties when you register please contact jodyb@mun.ca.
