An undergraduate degree, such as a Bachelor of Science, is typically pursued by students directly out of high school with no other post-secondary education experience. Students wishing to pursue an undergraduate degree in the Department of Biological Sciences can be admitted directly to the Faculty of Science and their program of choice. Our Biological Sciences programs are almost always completed in four to five years.
