Biology Undergraduate Studies

McMaster is a great university to choose if you want a degree in Biology. Our programs will prepare you for a career in research, in the biotechnology or environmental sector, or in a medical profession. Biology is a research intensive department. Our strength is our faculty – our educators have a solid foundation in both teaching and research, and work to bring current research perspective and research skills into the classrooms and the teaching laboratories.

Many of our Honours students graduate, having completed a research thesis based on their own work in a faculty member’s research lab. This experience provides them with skills and expertise that are sought after by the private sector and graduate student supervisors. Generally, new students take a year of level 1 “Life Science”. In the winter of their first year, they select a specific program to enter in level 2.
