Summary

Biology is the study of plants, animals and the diversity of life in an evolutionary context. As a Biology student you will gain insight into how organisms interact, how genes are inherited, how creatures evolve and much more. Our programs are practical and hands-on with research and fieldwork opportunities in almost every course to enhance in-class learning.

You will be exposed to the central aspects of Biology including:

  • Form and Function
  • Cell and Molecular Biology
  • Genetics
  • Evolution
  • Biodiversity
  • Systematic
  • Ecology and Environmental Biology

You have the freedom to study Biology in a way that suits your career aspirations. You may choose courses that will prepare you to become a professional biologist, or you can combine your biological studies with a major in Chemistry, Geography, Environmental Studies or Outdoor Recreation, Parks & Tourism.

Our program also offers 4 areas of concentration that will allow you to further study a particular area of interest including:

  • Animal Sciences
  • Biodiversity & Conservation
  • Plant Sciences
  • Neuroscience

The small size of our department allows you to become involved with ongoing faculty research, ranging from ecology to bio-refining. Exciting professional opportunities exist for you post-graduation with further study in medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, veterinary medicine or graduate school.
