Program Information

School:McGill University
Faculty:Faculty of Science
Field of Study:Biology/Biological Sciences, General
Description:Biology is the study of life. Its scope extends from molecules to organisms and ecosystems. It deals with fundamental questions such as the origin and evolution of plants and animals, interactions between living organisms and their environment, the structure and function of the living cell, the biochemical and genetic basis of human diseases, and the operation of the brain and the nervous system.

The program provides an introduction to the broad spectrum of Biological Sciences, in contrast to more specialized programs in Biochemistry, Microbiology, Physiology and Anatomy and Cell Biology. It prepares students for a wide range of employment opportunities, including entry to medical, veterinary and dentistry schools. It also provides solid background for those interested in careers related to environmental protection, wildlife management, biotechnology and genetic engineering. It can also lead to post-graduate studies and research careers in universities, research institutes, hospitals, and industrial or governmental laboratories.
