Integrative Biology at Laurier is a two-year thesis-based research program leading to the MSc degree. In their research students are expected to approach a problem from two or more levels of explanation (i.e. genetic/development, anatomy/physiology, ecology/environment, evolution). As opposed to the usual reductive approach where research is contained within a single sub-discipline of biology, the program in Integrative Biology requires students to assemble the details of their research into a comprehensive explanation of biological phenomena.
