MASTER OF BICHEMESTRY

The Department of Biological Sciences (College of Science) offers a Master of Science program in Biochemistry. Only full-time students are admitted to this program. Research requirements include either thesis or non-thesis options. The program is designed to allow students to expand their general exposure to Biochemistry and to deepen their expertise in a particular area of Biochemistry. With these objectives in mind, students enroll in both general and specialized courses in Biochemistry. Research for the M.Sc. degree is possible in any of the areas in which graduate faculty members have active research programs. These include the Biochemistry of Nucleic Acids, Marine Biochemistry, Natural Products Chemistry, Nutritional Biochemistry, Lipid Biochemistry and Trace Metal Metabolism.

According to the University Council decision dated 4/2/22007, Thesis students admitted with effect from September 2007 are exempted from the comprehensive examination.
