Improve The Ecosystems of Life at U of G

Posted: Friday, October 20, 2017 - 12:59

Science and Engineering Sunday is quickly approaching, so it’s time to break down our Bachelor of Science Program at the U of G.

We offer 27 Bachelor of Science majors, which encompass the Biological Sciences and the Physical Sciences.

The Biological Science programs explore all living things, from tiny organisms to large ecosystems and everything in between.

The Physical Science programs provide you with an understanding of the universe as a whole. You’ll look at the nature, substances, energy and matter surrounding living organisms.

Need more clarification? Let’s think end-goals for a minute. Are you thinking the environmental industry, veterinary school, dental school or healthcare? Biological sciences are where it’s at. Or, are you thinking you’d like to be in the pharmaceutical industry or continuing research in physics, chemistry or nanoscience? The Physical sciences are a great place to start to help you answer important questions about the universe!

Now that we’ve defined our two Science streams, let’s go over some “need-to-knows” about Science at U of G.

We Have a Common First Year

...We start you in the basics in biology, chemistry, physics and math to bring everyone to the same level of understanding before getting more specific in upper years.

Science at U of G is flexible

...The common first year makes it easy to switch majors as you discover your true passions; trust us, it happens all the time!

We offer Co-op

...10 of our Science Majors give you the option to get some real-life work experience and make valuable contacts.

Our Physics professors are STELLAR

...First-year professor Jason Thomas tests the laws of physics and recently broke 24 world records as his alter ego, The Great Orbax. Another physics prof, Martin Williams, was recently recognized for excellence in teaching undergraduate physics! That’s just to name a couple…

We Offer Hands-on Learning Experiences

...From experimenting in the lab to on/off campus research and volunteering positions, there is no shortage of hands-on learning opportunities at the U of G! For example, our Human Anatomy course gives Human Kinetics and Biomed students the opportunity to dissect human cadavers; which are donated from the local community.

With so many options available in Science at U of G, we recommend visiting the Programs of Study page to research each major individually.

And again, you should probably visit us at Science & Engineering Sunday to have your questions answered, tour campus, residence and educational buildings, and meet faculty and students within your program(s) of interest. Register today!
