Anatomy & Cell Biology

The Department of Anatomy & Cell Biology programs provide education in four sub-disciplines of the anatomical sciences (cell biology, developmental biology, gross anatomy, and neurobiology) and include prerequisite courses for professional schools and graduate studies in many areas of the health and life sciences. Graduates have career opportunities in biomedical and biotechnology research.

Programs Offered

The Department of Anatomy & Cell Biology offers 3-year, 4-year and Honours programs leading to B.Sc. degrees.  Students considering a Double Honours program must consult with academic advisors within the specific departments of interest.
