What can I do with my degree?

About the program

Concordia’s Biology students study life at all levels, from cell biology and the physiology of multicellular organisms to the interactions between organisms and their environment. Through labs, lectures and tutorials, students study genes and how they control cellular and organismal function and learn about the evolution, biodiversity and ecology of organisms and their physiology and morphology. They also study the chemical and cellular basis of living systems and receive extensive training in research methodology. Concordia’s hands-on approach provides a solid foundation for a career in the life sciences or environmental sciences, or paves the way for future graduate studies.
