Overview

Honours Bachelor of Science in Biodiversity

The Major in Biodiversity offers a broad education in the diversity and evolution of life while providing a more specialized understanding of biology at the level of the organism. It is the most flexible of the majors offered by the Department of Integrative Biology and as such, it allows students the opportunity to design a customized program around their interests. The major qualifies students for postgraduate work in biodiversity, botany, zoology, and other life sciences and provides a sound science background for students wishing to pursue professional life science degrees or careers in teaching, government service or the private sector.

Biodiversity impacts every aspect of our planet. To maximize a student’s exposure to biodiversity we strongly encourage students to consider an international exchange in their fifth semester. An increase in global awareness of the diverse issues facing biodiversity from different economic, social, environmental and biological landscapes will help students to critically think, analyze and recognize the inherent complexities within the field.

Discover the exciting field of biodiversity science through U of G's Biodiversity Institute of Ontario (BIO). BIO is leading global efforts to understand the unity and diversity of all life on Earth. Be a part of it. Explore natural selection, evolution, genetic variation, life cycles, ecosystem structure, population dynamics and more. Complete field experiences and consider an international exchange or internship to expand your understanding of biodiversity.
