Department of Biology

The primary mandate of the Department of Biology is to provide excellence in teaching at the undergraduate and graduate levels. The Department offers a comprehensive program, which exposes students to the full range of biological sciences. Our undergraduate three-year curriculum introduces students to modern studies in general, molecular, cell, and environmental biology. It also emphasizes active, hands-on experience with modern technology. Small class sizes with an emphasis on laboratories and tutorials foster ongoing, productive interactions between students and faculty.
Graduates in Biology may go on to professional programs in medicine, medical sciences, biotechnology, or science education. They may also enter the workforce directly, as research assistants, data analysts and members of marketing teams in the pharmaceutical and health industries. Still others may choose to pursue graduate studies in biological sciences, with the aim of following a career in academia or industry.
The Department of Biology offers a Bachelor of Science Degree (B.Sc.) in Biology for students who have successfully undertaken a minimum of 96 credits of required courses provided that they satisfy all other graduation requirements set by the University.
