Program Information

School:Western University
Faculty:Science
Degree:Bachelor; Honours
Field of Study:Biology/Biological Sciences, General
Description:When you study Biology at Western, you'll learn to view the natural world at the cellular level using the latest in analytical instrumentation. You’ll experience our flora and fauna as interconnected global ecosystems through sophisticated experimental design and data analysis. And you'll also have the opportunity to get your hands dirty with a field research project in a biodiverse location like the Adirondacks, Costa Rica, or Ecuador.

Like the interplay between basic science and engineering, the applied discipline of synthetic biology is where biological systems are designed to solve problems. In Synthetic Biology, you'll learn how synthetic biology tools are developed and applied to solve practical problems.

As a student in Science, you'll also have the opportunity to apply to the Science Internship Program. This program facilitates paid and career-related placements so you can work full-time for 8 to 16 months, following the third year of study. As with a traditional co-op degree, your graduation will be delayed by one year while you acquire marketable skills and work experience. Internship placement opportunities are available in the private, public, and not-for-profit sectors - so don't miss out! Click here for more information.
