Our Bachelor of Arts (BA) in Biology program is intended for those who want to have a role in communicating biology and biological concepts to others.
This program will prepare you for careers such as law, education/teaching, public policy or science journalism.
This is a flexible program that you can combine with other subject areas through minors, options or even as a dual major with another BA program.
We also offer a Bachelor of Science (BSc) in Biology, which provides a firm foundation not only in Biology, but also in Chemistry and Math. The BSc program is ideal for those looking to move on to graduate work in Biology or to professional postgraduate programs in environmental or health sciences.
In this program, 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.
As a senior undergraduate student, you’ll have the opportunity to become part of ongoing research programs at the cutting edge of our discipline.
Some examples of recent student research include:
Beginning in third year, single-major Biology students (i.e. students who do not combine this program with another BA program) have the option to specialize in one of three concentrations:
