Usual Timetabling for Biology Courses

Core 100-level and 200-level Biology courses (i.e. that are part of the Biology BSc or Environmental Biology BSc programs) are offered on a regular and predictable basis.

Some 300-level and 400-level courses are also offered on a regular and predictable basis, while others are offered more irregularly.

Non-majors 100-level courses (BIOL 140, BIOL 150) are offered by Luther College and/or First Nations University of Canada on a regular basis.
