Program Information

School: University of Alberta
Faculty: Faculty of Science
Degree: Bachelor; Honours
Field of Study: Cell Biology and Anatomy
Description: Cell Biology takes a coordinated approach to the study of cells – the basic units of life. It integrates all the other life sciences in studying cells from the point of view of how they function. Courses in protein function, gene expression, and developmental biology will provide you with a comprehensive cell biology background and prepare you for entry into the workforce, graduate school, or a professional program such as medicine. Cell Biology can also be taken as part of a BSc with Specialization degree.

The Bachelor of Science Honors degree provides excellent training in one specific subject. As an Honors student, you will focus on one main field of study and must maintain a higher standard of academic achievement than students in a General or Specialization program. This is the best program if you plan to pursue a higher degree or a research-based or academic career.
