Program Information

School: University of New Brunswick – Fredericton
Faculty: Faculty of Science
Degree: Bachelor; Co-op
Field of Study: Biology/Biological Sciences, General
Description: Biology is the science of life, and as a department we want to foster a fascination with the biological sciences, develop scientific literacy, and build a solid foundation for careers in biology and related professions. Contemporary biology asks many questions due to the vast scope of disciplines related to biological sciences, ranging from the smallest molecules and cellular components, to individual organisms such as microbes, plants, and animals, to the larger environment, ecosystems, and the biosphere.

Students must undertake a minimum of four work terms during the course of their program. The work terms may alternate with study terms, or the terms may run consecutively over two terms. Students must complete at least one study term after their last work term. Each four-month work term will be monitored directly by the employer and Departmental Co-operative Program Director through oral and written communications with the employer and student.
