Discover The Biochemistry Department
The Biochemistry program offers both an Honours degree, which prepares students for graduate studies or for professional schools, and a Majors degree, which provides students more flexibility in their program. The program places strong emphasis on mastering the fundamentals of experimental biochemistry, and provides students with well-equipped laboratory facilities, first-hand experience with modern laboratory equipment, and close instructional contact with professors.
Why study Biochemistry at Bishop’s?
Class sizes in many biochemistry courses are small, providing close personal contact between members of the faculty and students. The faculty is also involved in undergraduate laboratory instruction, which enhances contact with the professors and results in a friendly and productive learning experience in experimental biochemistry.
- Small classes
- Individual attention from professors
- Opportunity to work directly with modern laboratory equipment
- High acceptance rate to professional and graduate schools

BU Biology Club
The Biology club is a small club consisting of mostly biology students who are dedicated to enjoying themselves during the stressful times that are associated with the study of Biology. Our Wine and cheese celebrations held every semester are legendary, mostly thanks to our Lab Tech Jeff and the twister game. In addition, in the fall we typically have a golf tournament where we square off against our long time rivals from the chemistry department. In addition to these main events numerous potlucks are held throughout the year for us starving students. To raise money for these events, we typically hold the annual guppy sale, which provides the guppies which so many students seem to find ‘interesting’ ways of caring for, as well as the plant sale which provides a wide array of plants to liven up any dreary apartment or Rez room. In addition to these fun events for the students, the club also donates the extra money it receives to several different charities such as the World Wildlife Fund of Canada as well as to several other local charities. If anyone has any questions about the club, please contact the President of the Biology club (to be announced in September) or the Chair of the Biology Department (firstname.lastname@example.org).
