Biology today is the study of all living organisms and their relationships and interactions with other living organisms. Different biologists study different elements of Biology: genetics, cell biology, physiology, ecology, population biology, limnology, toxicology, conservation, behaviour, parasitology, development, etc. All of these learning and career opportunities are available to students in the Department of Biology at the University of Saskatchewan. We have lectures to lay down the ground rules, laboratories to get your hands busy and field trips to get your feet wet! Additional options within your program can include courses from agriculture, commerce, environmental science, toxicology and paleobiology.
