Information for Undergraduates

We offer many program options for undergraduate students, ranging from a general degree in Biology to more specialized degrees in either Cellular and Molecular Biology, or Ecology and Environmental Biology. We also offer cross-disciplinary degrees with other departments and institutions, providing students with opportunities to explore areas where biology intersects with other sciences.

Small class sizes (30 students or less for upper courses) combined with high quality laboratory components means every student gets superior hands on training and substantial student-professor interaction.

Fall 2021 Biology Courses (September through December)

Most U of R courses will be run via "remote delivery" in Fall 2021. A few specified lower enrolment courses (largely 300- or 400-level) will be offered via face-to-face instruction, while most of the higher enrolment courses will be offered via remote delivery.

BIOL 100-001 will be offered via Zoom (remote delivery; both lab and lecture); a syllabus is available.

General information about the University of Regina's COVID-19 response is found at the University of Regina COVID-19 update page.

UR Courses - Overview of How Courses will Run

Most undergraduate Biology courses have an associated UR Courses site (it's sort of a course website). Please check the UR Courses sites for your courses for an overview of how each course will run.  Access to UR Courses is from the University's homepage (top of the page, beside the link for UR Self-Service), or click here.
