Welcome to Biology

The field of Biological Sciences is among the fastest growing in the global economy. Demand is high for scientists working in areas such as medical research, bio-engineering, forensic science and environmental bioremediation.

Our newest undergraduate degree (Applied Biology) focuses on molecular biology, cellular biology, and genetics.  The Applied Biology degree compliments the University’s existing curricula. As a leader in experiential learning, both in the classroom and in real world applications through cooperative education, the Applied Biology program exposes our students to Biology laboratory techniques and enables them to have a meaningful work and research experience.

The program emphasizes cellular biology, molecular biology and genetics while building on existing curricular strengths in Biochemistry and Chemistry. The program is designed to prepare students for biotechnical careers.
