Biology Minor

Concordia University of Edmonton’s Biology and Environmental Science programs provides you with the opportunity to gain a greater appreciation for the role of science in today’s society. Through small lecture and lab sections that emphasize hands-on learning, students study the complexities of life and the challenges organisms face in our world’s changing environment.

Biology is the science of life. Biologists study the structure, function, growth, origin, evolution and distribution of living organisms. The biology minor will offer the student the freedom to take courses in any of these major fields of study in biology.

  • Botany: the study of plants, including agriculture
  • Cellular biology: the study of the basic cellular units of living things
  • Ecology: the study of how organisms interact with their environment
  • Genetics: the study of heredity
  • Molecular biology: the study of biological molecules
  • Physiology: the study of the functions of organisms and their parts
  • Zoology: the study of animals, including animal behaviour
  • Microbiology: the study of organisms that are too small to be seen unaided.
