DescriptionUBC's department of Microbiology and Immunology is a leading centre for the study of bacteria, fungi, and viruses, and their roles in human health and disease, agriculture, natural ecosystems, energy, and global sustainability. The department is known for its work in the human microbiome and immune system and how they affect human health, including warding off infection, cancers, or autoimmune diseases. You'll build foundational knowledge in microbiology and immunology and develop the expert knowledge and skills required to work in a range of relevant fields.

Microbiology and Immunology offers major or honours degrees that provide an in-depth knowledge of microbes and their interactions with the environment, and how they relate to human and environmental health. You’ll acquire laboratory skills in bacterial and eukaryotic cell culture and phenotyping, genomics, and data science. Our programs are distinguished by authentic course-based research experiences and opportunities to work in world-leading research labs. In your final year, you’ll engage in seminar courses focused on recent research discoveries pioneered by leading scientists in the field.
