Build a strong basis in the essentials, then choose the right topics for your chosen path.

Our Biology Department features teaching labs with state-of-the-art equipment that introduce you to the various techniques used in biology research. Small class sizes foster strong student-professor relationships. As a Biology student, you’ll follow the Biology core curriculum and additional Biology courses based on your interests. The Co-op program gives you the chance to complete paid work terms that last 12 to 16 weeks.
