Overview

Honours Bachelor of Science in Microbiology - Optional Co-op

Microbiology programs are designed to give students a good understanding of microorganisms, including diversity, ecology, physiology, molecular genetics, current approaches in bacterial genomics/proteomics, and microbial associations with animal hosts and the environments. Such knowledge will provide the basis for further work with microbes in medicine, agricultural industries (including biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, food and beverage) and the environment (surveillance and bio-remediation).

Students can take the B.Sc. program with a Major in Microbiology, or combine the minor with another major. Students should plan their programs in consultation with the microbiology faculty advisor. As course offerings may change during the program, students are strongly encouraged to review their plans at least once a year with their advisors, and to check the departmental website for program news.

Study the smallest and most predominant organisms on the planet: bacteria, archaea, viruses, yeasts and moulds. Explore varied topics, from deep sea ecosystems, or the normal microbial inhabitants of the human body, to practical matters of public health. With optional co-op, discover the medical, industrial and environmental impacts of microorganisms and learn about the methods used to study and utilize them for biotechnology or bio-remediation.

Also available in co-op.

The Co-op program in Microbiology is a five year program, including four work terms. 

Note: A minimum of three Co-op work terms including a Summer, Fall, and Winter are necessary to complete the Co-op requirement. *A fourth Co-op work term is optional and if completed, the total number of credits will equal 22.00.
