    Course Summary

    Microbiology involves the study of microscopic life - algae, fungi, protozoa, bacteria and even viruses - in order to better understand the massive influence they have on the ecosystem generally, as well as the ways they can be used and manipulated to supply the drugs and materials the modern world relies upon every day.

    A BSc in Microbiology from the University of Manitoba will give you a deep understanding of the study of microscopic organisms as well as the kind of practical laboratory skills you’ll need to succeed in a wide range of industrial or research roles. You’ll also learn the critical thinking and analysis skills you’ll need to succeed in nearly any other field. 

    This degree program can be taken as a 3 year General Degree, a 4 year Major Degree, a 4 year Honours Degree, or a 4 year program with an additional year in an Honours or Major Co-op.
