What will I learn?

The BSc (AgEnvSc) is offered on our beautiful Macdonald Campus, located in the picturesque town of Ste-Anne-de-Bellevue, on the western tip of the Island of Montreal. The campus is spread over 1600 acres of land containing research facilities, bike paths, an arboretum with walking and ski trails, working farm, greenhouses and much more. When you are not in class, you can spend time exploring all the west island has to offer. A free intercampus shuttle and good public transit links means the thriving metropolis of Montreal is also just a 40 minute bus or car ride away.

Over the course of three years (U1, U2 and U3), students will complete a 90-credit degree. For students from high schools outside Quebec, a 30-credit freshman year (called U0) will be added at the start of your studies (making this a four-year, 120-credit degree).

Program Requirements

The specialization in Animal Biology is intended for students who wish to further their studies in the basic biology of large mammals and birds. Successful completion of the program should enable students to qualify for application to most veterinary colleges in North America, to study in a variety of postgraduate biology programs, and to work in many laboratory settings.
