The graduate with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology will use the knowledge and skills obtained in the program to:

  • Collect, analyze and apply information to solve problems (managing information)
  • Use various laboratory techniques and/or instruments with understanding, accuracy, precision and safety. (technology)
  • Develop demonstrations and experiments that illustrate biological concepts or develop new concepts. Think logically within the scientific parameters of professional biologists. (higher-order thinking)
  • Use the language and concepts of Biology to communicate effectively in oral and written form; to follow instructions precisely and to function in independent and collaborative settings. (communicating and interacting)
  • Exhibit the ethical use of knowledge, materials and procedures that demonstrates an impact on society. (valuing)
