Conservation & Biodiversity

Conservation & Biodiversity

Program Summary

This program teaches students how ecology and evolution shape organismal features (from morphology and physiology to behaviour), and ultimately determine the broad patterns of organization of life on earth. At a time when habitat destruction and climate change are causing loss of species and disruption of ecosystems worldwide, graduates will be well trained to actively seek solutions to these problems. Laboratory work is an integral component of the program. The labs are sized to offer a small student/demonstrator ratio (maximum 20), which allows for close interaction and positive teaching and learning experiences.

The Biological Sciences at UTSC offer several distinct specialized programs. Students can choose from the Specialist Programs in Integrative Biology, Molecular Biology & Biotechnology, Human Biology or the Major Programs in Biology, Human Biology or Molecular Biology, Immunology & Disease.
