A first-class undergraduate biology degree is your stepping stone to many career options, including world-class research, pharmaceutical industry, biotechnology, forensics and more. The biologists at UTM can help you attain these career goals. We offer exciting undergraduate programs in all of the major biological areas with specialization in four main topics: Ecology & Field Biology, Whole Organisms; Genetics & Evolution; Cell, Molecular & Developmental Biology; Physiology & Behaviour.
With over two dozen active research scientists, more than forty graduate students and many post-doctoral fellows doing state-of-the-art research using the latest techniques, our students will have the opportunity to learn from the best. Our undergraduate research projects and summer student placements in research labs will give students valuable, first-hand experience working in a laboratory environment. We also have a dedicated Biology liaison librarian to assist our students in maximizing their research efforts when using U of T’s extensive library resources.
UTM Biology is a dynamic community. In addition to our research facilities, we also have many support staff working in the background to keep the department operating at the highest level. So if you’re interested in the best in biology, UTM Biology is here to serve you.
