Honours Biological Sciences - Co-operative Program in Environmental Biology
Note: No new students will be admitted to the program beginning Fall 2009.
The Co-operative Program in Environmental Biology aims to provide students with a strong background in pure and applied ecology. Students will be exposed to the principles of population, community and ecosystem ecology, as well as theories and techniques involved in assessing contamination of freshwater systems. The Co-operative Education Program offers students the opportunity to combine their classroom experiences with related work experiences.
Honours Biological Sciences - Co-operative Program in Environmental Biology students must maintain full-time academic status and satisfy the following:
(a) Must maintain a minimum cumulative average of 5.0, and
(b) Must maintain a minimum major average of 8.0, and
(c) Must not have more than one outstanding F on their transcript.
