Biology

Biology is the study of plants, animals and the diversity of life in an evolutionary context. As a Biology student you will gain insight into how organisms interact, how genes are inherited, how creatures evolve and much more. Our programs are practical and hands-on with research and fieldwork opportunities in almost every course to enhance in-class learning.

You will be exposed to the central aspects of Biology including:

  • Form and Function
  • Cell and Molecular Biology
  • Genetics
  • Evolution
  • Biodiversity
  • Systematics
  • Ecology and Environmental Biology?

You have the freedom to study Biology in a way that suits your career aspirations. You may choose courses that will prepare you to become a professional biologist, or you can combine your biological studies with a major in Chemistry, Geography, Environmental Studies or Outdoor Recreation, Parks & Tourism.

Our program also offers 4 areas of concentration that will allow you to further study a particular area of interest including:

  • Animal Sciences
  • Biodiversity & Conservation
  • Plant Sciences
  • Neuroscience

The small size of our department allows you to become involved with ongoing faculty research, ranging from ecology to biorefining. Exciting professional opportunities exist for you post-graduation with further study in medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, veterinary medicine or graduate school.

The Lakehead Advantage

Our location in the Boreal Forest makes Lakehead University the ideal institution to study Biology. We host intensive local field trips and field schools for our undergraduate students, making the most of the environment and wildlife available to us. While many other universities have to travel to get this experience, we can host our field trips within the 3 hours allotted for a class or a lab.

As a Biology student you will have access to the Lakehead University Instrumentation Lab (LUIL)? and learn to operate the tools and equipment to conduct your own research and generate data yourself. Unlike other universities, you can utilize the lab as opposed to passing your samples on to a technician. This practical knowledge gives you an advantage when applying to graduate or professional school or a science-based job.

Our relatively small class sizes provide exceptional networking opportunities with faculty members. This is especially helpful if you are considering pursuing an Honours Thesis or research project as you will require an academic advisor. Our faculty is well connected within the community and the industry, making such relationships very conducive to summer job opportunities.?

Applying to Lakehead University is easy and we are here to help you along the way.

Step 1 – Determine your general admission requirements:

To determine your general admission requirements, select one of the definitions?below:

  • Equivalent of a minimum 70% overall final average (Canadian)

    Note: Meeting the minimum admission requirements is not a guarantee of admission.

Canadian College
?General Admission Requirements:

College transfer applicants who are applying to a program that does not have a college transfer pathway are eligible for admission consideration if they have:

  • Completed a minimum of 1 year of full-time academic studies at an accredited community college since leaving high school;
  • Completed the appropriate?program-specific prerequisite courses; and
  • Achieved a minimum overall average of 70%.?
Canadian University
?General Admission Requirements:
  • Attended a university and successful completion of university level course work since leaving high school/college;
  • Program specific prerequisite courses;
  • A minimum overall average of C or 60%.
Canadian Bible College
?General Admission Requirements:
  • A minimum overall average of C / 60% or equivalent;
  • College must be accredited by the Association of Biblical Higher Education (ABHE);
  • Successfully meets the minimum?program specific preparatory course prerequisites?at the Grade 12U or M level or equivalent;

In first year you are required to take Biology 1110 and 1130 – Animal and Plant Biology, respectively – as well as Introductory Chemistry I & II, Calculus I & II, and Calculus I & II for Social Life and Sciences in addition to three elective courses that must not be within the Department of Biology.

If you are considering a career in the health sciences, we advise you to take a Physics course as one of your available electives.

Your Biology and Chemistry courses will have corresponding lab components, and your Calculus courses will have tutorials in addition to in-class lecture. This will provide time to study and to interact with your professors and teaching assistants.

If you are considering graduate school we strongly encourage you to take Biology 4101 – Honours Thesis – in which you will research a problem in Biology, prepare a report and present your findings in a Biology department seminar. If you wish to register, you must arrange for a faculty supervisor before the beginning of fourth year.

Biology internships and research assistant positions are provided to students, either in the summer or during the academic year, as they become available. Pairing work experience with hands-on labs and in-class lecture is invaluable. Click?here?for a listing of our faculty’s research areas.
