Majors in the Biological Sciences
Biology is the study of the living world around us. It explores the structure and function of living organisms including animals, plants, bacteria and viruses. Through one-on-one interaction with our faculty, our students gain in-depth experience in the process of science, learn laboratory techniques, as well as share in the excitement of scientific discovery.
The Biology program is delivered by the Biology department.
Physiology is a branch of biology that focuses on the functions of organisms. Through interaction with our faculty, students receive robust foundations in anatomy and physiology and cellular and integrative physiology, as well as in cutting-edge investigational techniques that characterize modern day physiological research.
The Physiology program is delivered by the Biology department.
Biochemistry, Cell & Molecular Biology (BCMB)
The BCMB program is jointly delivered by the Biology and Chemistry departments.
The Environmental Science program is jointly delivered by the Biology and Chemistry departments.
The Neuroscience program is jointly delivered by the Biology and Psychology departments.
