Biology is the study of life at all levels of organization, from molecular and cell to population and community. Students who complete a single major in Biology will have a broad introduction to these topics, along with the opportunity to specialize in aspects of biology that interest them in particular. Many courses provide an opportunity for independent research projects. The Bachelor of Science Program in Biology offers a single-major Honours program (20.0 credits), a single-major General program (15.0 credits), and a minor in Biology (5.0 credits). Students may also choose to do an Honours or General joint-major degree with other departments or programs, including Environmental & Resource Science/Studies, Chemistry, Geography, Anthropology, and Psychology, among others.
Please refer to the current Trent University Undergraduate Academic Calendar to review all of the prerequisites and course options available to those pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Biology. For more details about courses, please refer to the previous course syllabi.
