Biochemistry and Microbiology : Program Requirements
Candidates for the MSc degree are required to successfully complete a minimum of 3 units of graduate level courses, approved by the student’s supervisory committee. Normally students are required to take BCMB 500, 501 and 502 as part of this 3 unit requirement. Students may be required to take additional graduate level courses at the discretion of the supervisory committee.
Students must complete BCMB 580. Successful completion of the course requires that students present their own 580 seminar and receive a favourable assessment, and that they attend and participate in seminars given by other graduate students and senior scientists. Further information on the assessment of student performance for the BCMB 580 seminar can be found within the graduate handbook located at <www.uvic.ca/science/biochem/graduate>.
Candidates for the PhD degree are required to complete successfully a minimum of 3 units of graduate level courses approved by the student’s supervisory committee. Students are normally required to take BCMB 500, 501 and 502 (if BCMB 502 has not already been taken as part of the Master's degree requirement) and BCMB 602 as part of this 3 unit requirement. Students who enter with a Master’s degree may be given credit for up to 3 units of previous graduate level work. Additional graduate level courses may be required at the discretion of the supervisory committee.
Students must complete BCMB 580 and BCMB 680, which require that students present their own 580 and 680 seminars and receive favourable assessments, and that they attend and participate in seminars given by other graduate students and senior scientists. Further information on the assessment of student performance for the BCMB 580/680 seminars can be found within the graduate handbook located at <www.uvic.ca/science/biochem/graduate>. The BCMB 580 and BCMB 680 seminars must be on the student’s own research. Students must register for BIOC 699 or MICR 699 (thesis).
