Description: This honours program will train students in the fundamentals of biology – with a focus on molecular biology – and will give them computational and mathematical skills needed to manage, analyze, and model large biological datasets. Two integrative features of the program are a six-credit joint independent studies course, and a one-credit seminar. Compared to its non-Honours counterpart, the Honours program requires additional research credits and a larger number of advanced courses. Students must have and maintain a minimum CPGA of 3.5. Students may complete this program with a maximum of 79 credits or a minimum of 75 credits. This depends upon the student’s choice of required courses and whether or not the student is exempt from taking†COMP 202.
