About the courseThe undergraduate curriculum stresses central aspects of biology required for a balanced education, namely, form and function, cell and molecular biology, genetics and evolution, biodiversity, systematics, ecology and environmental biology. Students are enthusiastically supported in their quest for a career in any of several biological disciplines, the health-related fields, in teaching or in research. The Department of Biology provides a sound education for the needs of both science-based, professional career students and those who wish to understand the complexity of the living world and apply that knowledge in a specific way. The Department offers several programs structured to fulfill various interests. Students considering a career in the health-related fields, and those who are contemplating a career in science as researchers and educators at the MSc and PhD level, are advised to register in one of the following programs, depending on ones specific interest: Honours BSc (Biology Major), BSc (Joint Major in Biology and Chemistry) or the HBESc (Biology Major). The BSc (Natural Science Major) is viewed as a terminal degree in biology, it will appeal to those who may not wish to pursue the career-scientist route but may wish to apply a basic knowledge of biology to their chosen career. An interest in Biology can also be pursued in combination with Outdoor Recreation (HBOR/BSc Natural Science) and Education (HBSc Biology/BEd and BSc Natural Science/BEd).
