2) The Honours Specialization in Biochemistry of Infection and Immunity includes fundamental and advanced courses from microbiology and immunology as well as biochemistry. recognizing the importance of both fields.

3) The Honours Specialization in Microbiology & Immunology with Pathology allows a more comprehensive understanding of the pathogenesis of human diseases.


Students in Year 4 of each Honours Specialization module complete a research project/seminar course.

Students electing to pursue a non-honours BMSc degree may register in the Specialization in Microbiology & Immunology. This module includes the microbiology and immunology courses of the Honours Specialization but does not include the research project/seminar course.

Students who wish to combine an interest in Microbiology & Immunology with another discipline may register in either a Major in Microbiology & Immunology, which includes a selection of advanced courses, or a Minor in Microbiology & Immunology. which offers students an introduction to the discipline.
