Overview

Honours Bachelor of Science in Molecular Biology and Genetics

The B.Sc. program with a Major in Molecular Biology and Genetics is a broadly based program in genetics including related areas of cell and molecular biology. In consultation with the Faculty Advisor, students can choose a general program or can focus their courses in areas such as molecular biology, cell biology, developmental biology, genetics, or agricultural genetics. The program qualifies students for postgraduate training in cell or molecular biology and genetics including clinical genetics and genetic counseling, and provides an excellent background for careers in biotechnology, toxicology, agriculture and medical research. Students may enter this major in Semester 1 or any semester thereafter.

Explore genomes and the genetics of microorganisms, plants and animals, and the structure and function of cells. Discover how significant advances in molecular and cellular biology can be applied to gene therapy, genetic testing, bio-pharmaceuticals and crop production. Participate in research projects with professors to gain additional additional hands-on training for a career in this exciting field.
