Biology

Overview

undergrad viewbook
Study living organisms as you collect and analyze data and think critically about research problems. In the lab, learn experimental techniques and design ways to test your hypotheses. Discover how to form values and convictions based upon sound reasoning and clear methodology. Focus on: cellular and molecular biology, ecology, bio-medicine, general biology, kinesiology or health sciences.

So here's the deal:

Take five courses per semester for four years, and you'll complete your Biology degree
[courses are worth 3 credits and 3 x 5 x 2 x 4 = 120 credits].
