Program Description

  • Biology can be studied at the level of molecules, cells, organisms, and populations. Selecting a Biology module affords the opportunity to study at all of these different scales or to focus in upper-year courses on only one or two. Another reason the Biology modules are a popular choice is it allows students to study a wide range of organisms from microbes to humans. Students interested in the area of ecology will find that the Biology modules will allow them to take a wide range of engaging courses covering aspects of the community, population, molecular and chemical ecology.
  • Similarly, students interested in evolutionary biology can be engaged by courses on more quantitative aspects of evolution to evolutionary genetics. Both plant and animal physiology courses are also popular choices of students in these modules built on a strong cohort of research faculty in these areas.
