You can pursue the Biological Science (Honours) program from University of Ontario Institute of Technology or choose to specialize in one of four areas.


Environmental Toxicology

Environmental toxicology is an interdisciplinary applied field involving health, agriculture, urban development and industry. It combines a strong base in biology and chemistry, with a focus on physiology, biochemistry, environmental science and environmental chemistry.

Life Sciences

This specialization in the Biological Science (Honours) program from University of Ontario Institute of Technology, consists of an integrated and focused concentration on biology and chemistry, with additional courses in neuroscience and human anatomy. You will gain a detailed understanding of the structure and functioning of the human body, how the brain and nervous systems work, and what happened when the brain degenerates and becomes damaged or disorganized.

Pharmaceutical Biotechnology

Biotechnology is a rapidly growing area with many applicants in health, agriculture, and industry. This specialization combines a primary emphasis on biology and chemistry with molecular and cell biology, pharmacology, biochemistry, and physiology. Students in this specialization also benefit from enhanced laboratory experience.

Science and Management
