Molecular Biology and Biochemistry and Business Administration Joint Honours

Bachelor of Science

The Department of Molecular Biology and Biochemistry and the Beedie School of Business co-operate to offer this Bachelor of Science (BSc) joint honours program. This program offers in-depth combined training that is pertinent to development and administration in emergent biotechnology enterprises. Molecular biology and biochemistry form the scientific and technological underpinnings of today’s burgeoning biotechnology field while business administration teaches fundamentals of economics, management, marketing, investment and business law.

Admission Requirements

Students must meet the criteria specified by the Department of Molecular Biology and Biochemistry, and the Beedie School of Business for entering an honours program.

Molecular Biology and Biochemistry Admission Requirements

Program entry requires MBB advisor permission. Declared honours students may follow the requirements in effect when they were accepted into the program, or the requirements as set out below.

Beedie School of Business Admission Requirements

Students who wish to pursue the joint honours program must first be admitted to the joint major program. Upon completion of nine upper division Business units at SFU, students may apply for admission to the joint honours program.

Grade Requirements

For entry and continuance, the following grade point averages will be used for the Beedie School of Business:

  • minimum 3.00 cumulative grade point average
  • minimum 3.00 cumulative upper division grade point average
  • minimum 3.00 grade point average for upper division BUS courses
  • minimum 3.00 cumulative grade point average on all BUS courses

For graduation, students must also meet the required minimum GPAs in accordance with the University and both the Beedie School of Business and Molecular Biology and Biochemistry. This includes achieving a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.0, and an upper division grade point average of 3.0.

Course Access

In addition to normal university grade point average requirements, the Beedie School of Business requires a minimum 2.30 overall SFU Business course grade point average for entry into all 300 and 400 division business courses.

For a course to be accepted as fulfilling a prerequisite, or for a lower division requirement, or for a core course to be accepted in a student's program in business, a student must have obtained a minimum grade of C- (C minus).

Program Requirements

The program requires a total of 132-133 units, including 70-72 units in MBB-related courses and 53-54 units in BUS-related courses, with little curriculum scheduling flexibility.

Lower Division Requirements

Lower Division Molecular Biology and Biochemistry Requirements

Students complete all of

BISC 101 - General Biology (4)
