About this Program
Level: Bachelor of Science - Biology-Chemistry (Optional Co-op)
Length: 8 semestersCheck My Eligibility
Biology-Chemistry is one of several interdisciplinary programs offered at UNB. This program gives students the opportunity to study biology and chemistry jointly to cover a broad base of topics in both disciplines, and can be tailored to individual student interests. Courses in biology, chemistry, math, and physics will give students a knowledge of organisms (from the cellular level up to ecosystem level interactions) and how they can be understood and manipulated through application of chemical tools, techniques, and analysis at the molecular level. A selection of chemistry courses covering its main sub-disciplines will support student understanding of the relevant biochemical, medicinal, and pharmaceutical aspects of the program. The Biology-Chemistry program is available as a four-year Bachelor of Science degree with majors or honours program options in one of two streams: The Pre-Health Profession (PHP) stream, or the Comprehensive Stream. Our Biology and Chemistry departments have outstanding reputations, both nationally and internationally. As a student, you will be able to benefit from our stellar accomplishments in research and acclaimed graduate and nationally-accredited undergraduate programs. The impact of our Biology and Chemistry professors’ research has led to several researchers not only being awarded large research grants, but some also being nationally recognized as Canada Research Chairs.
Study and Work in Canada
Full-time undergraduate and post-graduate international students can work anywhere on or off campus without a work permit. The rules around the number of hours a student will be allowed to work may vary based on the country the student chooses to study in.
