Undergraduate Program

The Department of Biology at Memorial University offers students the opportunity to pursue undergraduate degrees in Biology, Cell and Molecular Biology, Ecology and Conservation, and Marine Biology, with both Honours and Cooperative Education options available in each of the aforementioned programs.

Each of our programs allow students to study a specialized program of prescribed core courses while having the freedom to take a broad variety of elective courses to facilitate a thorough understanding of the multifaceted nature of biology. Our Honours degree provides students the opportunity to conduct independent research under the guidance of a faculty advisor while our cooperative program allows students to supplement their academic study with work experience obtained through three full-time, paid work term placements.

The Minor in Biology is a flexible program that allows students pursuing degrees in other academic disciplines to complete select core and elective courses within the Biology program to supplement their major.
