BSc: Major in Biology

New Student Info: BIOLOGY

The Bachelor of Science (BSc) Major in Biology program will equip students for graduate study, health professional and teacher certification programs, or jobs in industry, government or academic research. Central to this program is the provision of a lab intensive experience where students learn first-hand the appropriate use of equipment and techniques to investigate living organisms and how they function.

Upper level courses build upon the core knowledge and skills developed in 1st and 2nd Year, allowing the exploration of more advanced biological concepts and practical techniques. This culminates in a community focused research or directed studies project which requires students to apply the knowledge and skills they have learned.

The BSc Major in Biology may be completed on a part-time or full-time basis, with students being admitted in September, January and May. The full program is offered at the Surrey campus, with first and second year courses normally also available on the Richmond campus. Some first year courses may also be offered on the Langley campus.
