The Zoology program offered by the Laurentian University provides courses that are designed to give students a rigorous background in the fundamentals of animal biology. Sudbury is a great place to study the effects of the pollution and rehabilitation, with its history in mining and its successful, UNESCO-recognized re-greening program.
The specialisation provides an emphasis on whole organisms and their development, genetics, evolution, physiology, behaviour, and interaction with the environment. The specialization provides enough flexibility to allow students to pursue specific areas of interests such as mammals, reptiles, and frogs, fisheries biology, evolution, wildlife management, etc.
Graduates can rest assured knowing there is a multitude of career options they can explore post-graduation.
