Gain an excellent grounding in modern biology and obtain the working skills of a professional biologist with a USB Bachelor of Science in Biology.

In your first and second year, you gain a foundational understanding of cell biology, biochemistry, and ecology/organism interactions. In your third and fourth year, you expand your knowledge through a wide range of upper-level courses. 

The program:

  •     offers you a rich lab-intensive experience for interactive, hands-on practice in laboratory and research skills.
  •     encourages you to develop your own biology research, either with individual faculty guidance or as part of regular course material.
  •     prepares you for graduate or professional schools with concentrations in varied fields such as genetics.




The Conference Board of BC reports that careers requiring knowledge of natural sciences offer a low unemployment rate and rising wages.

Biology degree holders are well placed to compete for entry-level positions in a variety of employment areas including land management, environmental protection, fish and wildlife service, the food and drug sector, geographical survey, health agencies, or agriculture.

A Biology degree is the essential starting point for graduate studies in various fields of biology, including biotechnology, environmental toxicology, neuroscience, ecology, and microbiology.
