Overview

Bachelor of Science in Biology

Biology at Brandon University is about much more than the scientific study of animals, plants and microbes. First year introduces the diversity of life on the planet and explains how genes and cells function. 

Second year courses further explore diversity and fundamental biological and ecological processes, leading to third and fourth year courses with greater specialization. 

The program have a reputation for high quality training of students who go on to earn higher degrees at prestigious universities.

The Department of Biology offers 3-year and 4-year B.Sc. degree programs within which the Biological Science Stream and the Biomedical Science Stream are recognized. Students entering Biology should select one of these two streams toward the end of their first year.

The 4-Year degree programs are recommended for students considering academic or research careers in the biological or biomedical sciences, or who intend to continue to advanced degrees. 

The 3-Year program is appropriate for students intending to enroll in an after-degree program such as the Bachelor of Education (A.D.) or in programs leading to employment with regional health authorities, law enforcement agencies, or the private sector. 

Both the 3-Year and 4-Year programs meet the requirements for entry into many professional and clinical programs.  

A Co-operative Education (Co-op) option is available for students enrolled in a Biomedical or Biological Science Stream Major, 4-Year or 4-Year Degree (Honours) degree.
