    Course Summary

    The life sciences are a broad category, including everything from Ecology, Evolution and Biochemistry to Genetics and Molecular Biology – even Statistics. This makes the biological Sciences a very popular subject to study, and one which combines naturally with a wide range of minors or dual majors.

    A BSc in the biological Sciences from the University of Guelph is extremely flexible, and you can largely form your own degree using electives. In addition to abstract theory, you’ll gain the practical laboratory skills you’ll need to succeed in higher academics or many different industrial and research roles. It can also prepare you for medical, veterinary or other professional schools. You’ll also learn critical thinking, analysis and many other transferrable skills you’ll need to succeed in nearly any field.

    This degree program can be taken as a 4 year Major, a 4 year Honours Program, a combined Honours Program, or the standard arrangement of one Major and one or more Minors.

    If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.
