what is learning biology
Graduates should have acquired knowledge and skills that will allow entry into laboratory or field jobs, or further study in areas such as Education and Public Health. Graduates of the 4-year program should be prepared for entry to graduate or professional school, a career, and professional certification by, for example, the Alberta Society of Professional Biologists.
The 3- and 4-year biology programs at Concordia are designed to give students a broad understanding of the foundational concepts in biology along with extensive laboratory experience that supports and expands upon concepts discussed in lecture while allowing students to gain a variety of practical skills. The emphasis streams in the 4-year program (Cellular and Molecular Biology, Integrative Biology) give students the opportunity to study a particular area of biology in depth within the context of a liberal arts education.
Imagine standing on a small hill, looking over a vast stretch of Arctic tundra with the cold wind on your face and wondering: What kind of organisms can I find here? How do they manage to live in this cold, harsh environment?
Throughout the pages of this open electronic learning portal, we try to answer such questions as good as we can with today’s knowledge. It provides material and information, including links to further reading, about Arctic ecosystems and organisms living within the Arctic.
