|Biology is the study of life. We address questions as minuscule as the factors controlling the expression of a single gene, to as wide as changes to an entire ecosystem. Students with a strong interest in biology but not a strong grounding in the basic sciences thrive in the B.A. Biology program. The B.A is much more flexible than the B.Sc., and many students pair it with a second B.A. major. For example, a student interested in governmental health policy might choose a B.A. in Biology (Health Science) and a B.A. in Political Science, whereas an environmentally-oriented student might pair a B.A. Biology (Biodiversity and Ecology) with a B.A. in Environmental Studies.
Health Science prepares students for graduate school in biomedical fields such as cell biology or physiology, and is usually the choice of students hoping to enter medicine, dentistry, or other health-related professional programs. Many of these students also enroll in the Pre-Medicine program.
