SBC100 (Biochemistry) is a three-credit, 14-week introductory biochemistry course designed to build on knowledge acquired in SGC100.
In SBC100, students will learn the fundamental concepts of biochemistry as it pertains to the human body. The focus of this course is on the structure and metabolism of macromolecules such as carbohydrates, lipids, proteins and nucleic acids. Essential biochemistry concepts including glycolysis, protein synthesis, enzymes, the citric acid cycle, the electron transport chain and ATP synthesis are thoroughly investigated. The application of biochemistry to naturopathic principles is integrated throughout the course; providing students with a unique opportunity to learn biochemistry within the context of naturopathic medicine. Incorporation of a virtual laboratory component enhances and re-enforces course material and allows the student to experience a practical application of biochemistry while maintaining the convenience of online learning. SBC100 provides the necessary pre-requisite knowledge required for the ND program.
Each course is 14-weeks in duration (3-credits) and is delivered in a blended learning style, which includes online self-study modules with weekly live interactive online tutorial sessions one evening per week with the course instructor.
