The Zoology program offered by the Laurentian University studies animals, organisms and how they’re adapting, surviving and thriving in today’s environment. Lead the pack to a great job studying, researching and following life in the outdoors.


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.
