B.Sc. Honours Biological Sciences

Biology students

Biology is one of the life sciences that describes the study of the well-being or overall condition of molecules, cells, organisms, and the environment through observation, experimental investigation and theoretical explanation. 

Program Description 

Our program involves the application of modern investigative techniques in several biological areas. We offer specialization in microbiology, cellular, developmental, environmental and evolutionary biology, population and ecosystem ecology or a combination of these areas. 

Biological science majors acquire the tools and skills necessary to successfully compete for positions in industry, government, education or any one of several professional programs including medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, veterinary medicine and physical therapy—just to name a few.
