O que eu aprenderei?

Biology is a natural science concerned with the study of all living organisms. Although living organisms share some unifying themes, such as their origin from the same basic cellular structure and their molecular basis of inheritance, they are diverse in many other aspects.

This diversity of life leads to many divisions in biological science. Biologists look at such topics as origins, structure, function, reproduction, growth and development, behavior and evolution of different organisms. In addition, biologists consider how living organisms interact with each other, and the environment, on an individual as well as a group basis.

What can I do with a Biology Degree from CBU?

A Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from Cape Breton University offers a sound foundation for a wide variety of professional careers in fields including, but not limited to, Business, Conservation, Education, Health Care, Natural Resources, and Technology. Students who obtain a four-year BSc or a four-year BSc Honours in Biology are also very well prepared to go on to graduate studies to pursue Research or Academic careers in any branch of biology.

Our goal as a department is to work hard to provide all of our students with the training and skills necessary to meet their career objectives. Our 3- and 4-year B.Sc. degree programs are designed to ensure that each student gets a good grounding in key concepts and skills that are essential for a biologist, while the breadth of our course offerings allows students to specialize in the areas of ecology and evolutionary biology, cell and molecular biology and health/medical sciences.

Unlike larger universities, our small class sizes provide students with the opportunity to get to know and interact with our friendly faculty and lab instructors. Likewise, over 85% of our courses have an associated lab component, where we emphasize hands-on activities, applying knowledge to real-world problems, and skills development. In fact, many of our labs take students outside the classroom to apply material learned in lectures to the forests, streams, and shorelines nearby.

Why Study Biology at CBU?

Biology is a diverse and interesting subject matter, and you’re already a big part of it.

Unlike larger universities, our small class sizes provide students with the opportunity to get to know and interact with our friendly faculty and lab instructors.

CBU’s biology faculty are actively engaged in diverse fields of research including forest ecology, plant genetics, invertebrate zoology, freshwater and marine biology, avian behavioral ecology, neuro ethology and vertebrate paleontology.

To name a few, CBU biology research projects have taken students snorkeling in the tropical waters of Barbados, sampling whelk and sea cucumber from fishing boats off Satirize Bank and examining the effects of moose grazing in the Cape Breton Highlands.

Biology at CBU offers a sound foundation for a wide variety of professional careers in fields including Business, Conservation, Education, Healthcare, Natural Resources and Technology.

Graduates of BSc Biology at CBU are prepared to go on to graduate studies to pursue Research or Academic careers in any branch of biology. Talk to Enrolment Services Professional about building onto your Biology degree with post-graduate studies.
