Our Biology program takes an integrative approach to biology and emphasizes commonalities of life principles and processes across the many levels of biological organization, from the molecular level to the biosphere. We offer both a Bachelor of Arts (BA) and a Bachelor of Science (BSc).
Our BSc provides a firm foundation in chemistry and math, and prepares you for graduate work in biology as well as for professional programs in environmental sciences and health sciences.
You’ll study molecular processes and cell structures, signalling mechanisms, metabolic pathways, patterns of inheritance, physiological responses, life histories, biodiversity and conservation and strategies for survival across the 3 domains of life. Courses incorporate hands-on lab sessions, tutorials and seminars. As a senior undergraduate student, you’ll have the opportunity to become part of ongoing research programs at the cutting edge of our discipline.
Beginning in your third year, you’ll have the option to specialize in 1 of 3 streams:
