Programs of Study
Programs in Biology
The major in biology introduces students to cell biology, genetics, evolution, ecology, and physiology (both plant and animal) and, in combination with another major or minor, opens the way to graduate studies or to a career in the life sciences.
The specialization in biology involves more in-depth study of the subdisciplines in biology. Students either pursue diverse areas of interest or concentrate in one of the three options (cellular and molecular biology; physiology; or ecology, evolution and behaviour) with a compulsory independent research component designed to prepare for graduate studies.
The minor in biology is a flexible program that allows students to select a subset of biology courses.
