Program Description This program is intended for students interested in wildlife biology, ecology, zoology, plant science, and/or the environment. This degree prepares students for employment or graduate studies in these varied environmental and organismal fields. The Biology programs educate students about diverse aspects of living organisms, ranging from microbes to human population. Students receive extensive instruction and hands-on experience in Bishop's modern laboratory facilities, and are encouraged in every way to develop their capacities for independent work. Bishop's University is located near a variety of habitats including bogs, lakes, rivers, mountains, marshes, hardwood forests and meadows. This variety means students can be hiking during one lab and canoeing the next. The rural setting of Bishop's combines the features of a biological field station with those of a well-equipped biology department providing exceptional opportunities for field study and research in ecology and environmental biology.
