Glendon's biology program is perfect for those who are interested in conservation biology, animal behaviour, ecology, and more. A worldwide focus on public health and environmental issues calls for more bilingual graduates who can work in the science professions. Glendon’s small classes offer a personalized experience with advanced hands-on research opportunities rarely offered before you reach grad school. Glendonites can also take biology courses at the Keele campus, the longest-established scientific program at York, home to internationally-recognized teaching and research professors.

Bilingual scientists needed in Ontario

As the first and only bilingual Biology BSc in Southern Ontario to offer courses in English and French, Glendon’s program helps address a provincial need for bilingual professionals in the sciences.

Ce programme est parfait pour ceux qui sont intéressés par la biologie de la conservation, le comportement animal, l’écologie et d’autres domaines de la biologie. L’attention mondiale accordée aux questions de santé publique et d’environnement entraîne un besoin accru de diplômés en biologie formés pour travailler dans des professions scientifiques. Les petites classes à Glendon vous offrent une expérience personnalisée et des possibilités de recherche de pointe qui sont rares pendant des études de premier cycle. En tant qu’étudiant de Glendon, vous pouvez aussi suivre des cours de biologie sur le campus Keele, dans le plus ancien programme scientifique de York, où œuvrent de nombreux professeurs, ayant une renommée mondiale pour leur enseignement et leur recherche.

L’Ontario a besoin de scientifiques bilingues

En tant que premier et seul programme de B.Sc. en Biologie dans le sud de l’Ontario à offrir des cours en français et en anglais, notre programme est bien placé pour répondre au besoin de professionnels scientifiques bilingues dans la province.
