Overview

Bachelor of Science - Biophysics

York's Biophysics program draws on the long-established strengths of Biology and Physics programs, with uniquely interdisciplinary courses highlighting their interfaces.

Biophysics is an exciting discipline at the intersection between physics and biology. It is an interdisciplinary field in which the laws, methods and techniques of physics are applied to biological processes and organisms. 

Biophysics applies the knowledge of physics to explain biological questions, such as the transmission of nervous impulses or muscle control.

Students will learn to bridge physics and biology to gain a deep understanding of the complexities of life.
