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.

Winter 2022 Biology Courses (January through April) - COVID-19

BIOL 101-001 and -002 (lectures are MWF) will be offered via "remote delivery".  BIOL 101-050 (lectures on Saturdays) is currently planned to be face-to-face.  BIOL 101 laboratories (BIOL 101-051, -09x) are scheduled for "remote delivery". Please check the Search Classes website for information about the other BIOL 101 courses (including off-campus).

Overall, the Winter 2022 BIOL courses (lectures, laboratories) will be offered as either face-to-face or remote delivery. Some courses will have face-to-face lectures and remote delivery labs, while other courses will be face-to-face for both labs and lectures. Please consult Search Classes for specific course information. As well, please keep in mind that face-to-face instruction may be replaced by remote delivery pending COVID-19 conditions.

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.
