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 Science (BSc) and a Bachelor of Arts (BA).
Our BA program is intended for those who want to communicate biological concepts to others. It will prepare you for a variety of careers, such as law, teaching, public policy or science journalism. This is a flexible program that you can combine with another BA program at Laurier.
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 three 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 third year, single-major biology students (students who do not combine this program with another BA program) have the option to specialize in one of three concentrations:
