Suggested course selections for Biology majors
To assist students in designing their Biology program, four different course ‘streams’ are suggested below, each representing a sub-discipline within biology that corresponds with a general research focus of faculty within the Biology Department. These course streams provide guidance for students who wish to “specialize” in one of these sub-disciplines. Students do not need to formally select or apply for any of these streams for their program. Some students may prefer to sample broadly from across all four areas. However, for those who wish to specialize in one area, students can use the corresponding chart below to plan ahead and “map out” their course selections over the four years of the program. Suggestions are given for courses to select from Biology as well as supporting courses that are offered by other departments.
