The Biology BSc Honours program requires the same total credit hours as the BSc but three additional biology courses (9 credit hours) must be taken. Two of the additional courses must be BIOL 498 and BIOL 499 (independent research).

The course requirements for all of the above programs are described in the official UofR Undergraduate Calendar. The requirements are also shown on the Faculty of Science website.

To graduate with a BSc Honours degree, students must have an overall average of at least 70%, and an average of least 75% in courses in the major discipline and required cognate courses (non-Biology Science courses required as part of the degree program).
