Program Information

School:McGill University
Faculty:Faculty of Agricultural & Environmental Sciences
Degree:Bachelor
Field of Study:Zoology/Animal Biology
Description:The specialization in Animal Biology is intended for students who wish to further their studies in the basic biology of large mammals and birds. Students study animal physiology and function, reproduction and nutrition, immunology, genetics and biotechnology and its uses with animals. There is a strong ‘hands-on’ component to many courses and this is coupled with the close proximity of the University Farm as well as the Large Animal Research and Small Animal Research units which are located on the Macdonald Campus.

Successful completion of the program should enable students to qualify for application to most veterinary colleges in North America, to study in a variety of postgraduate biology programs, and to work in many laboratory settings.
