Description: Agricultural Biology provides students with a comprehensive background in the life sciences and the ability to apply scientific principles to biotechnology, wildland ecology and management, physiology and behaviour of domestic animals, genetics and evolution. The Agricultural Biology major combines theoretical biological principles with the more applied agricultural science knowledge.

Course work will stress situations that are relevant to the flora, fauna and agriculture of Saskatchewan. Closely associated with the university are government and private research institutions with considerable expertise in biotechnology, weed, plant disease, insect pest management, and wildlife (especially waterfowl) ecology. These institutions provide, through their student employment programs, major opportunities to gain experience in these areas.
