Biology is an increasingly exciting and rapidly expanding science. As the science of life, biology not only encompasses the study of the chemicals and cells of which organisms are composed, but extends to the study of global ecosystems and global biodiversity. Genetics, microbiology, cell biology, botany, zoology, ecology and evolution are just a few of the fields of study embraced by the science of Biology.
The Biology department of Capilano University offers a complete selection of biology courses at the first and second year levels, all of which are transferable to other institutions. Most biology courses have a laboratory component, and several include field trips. Students can use these courses towards an Associate of Science degree or a Bachelor's of Science degree at a recognized university.
Capilano's Biology graduates are a diverse and successful bunch! After taking their first- and second-year university courses here, they have completed their university degrees at either local universities or elsewhere in Canada. Recent surveys indicate that Capilano students transferring to universities continue to do very well in their academic studies. Why is this so? Survey results found our graduates to be more engaged in the learning process as contact with professors, interactive laboratories, and close knit classes all contribute to the student's active role in the education process.
Capilano University's Biology Department offers courses to meet a variety of educational needs. BIOL 104 and 105 meet the laboratory science requirements for Arts students and are general interest Biology courses. BIOL 112 and 113 are equivalent to first year human anatomy and physiology in many Human Health Science programs. (See BC Transfer Guide)
Students planning a major in Biology or another life science, such as botany, cell biology, ecology, genetics, marine biology, microbiology, physiology, oceanography or zoology, should enrol in BIOL 110, and BIOL 111.
All biology courses (except BIOL 200 and BIOL 202) have weekly laboratory periods and/or field trips. The purchase of Lab manuals is required. Some courses have field trips which have extra costs associated with them. Some courses may have material costs associated with them.
A complete selection of second year courses is available which meet the credit transfer requirements of all B.C. universities. Some of these courses may be included in the requirements for pre-professional programs, and for specific life science programs. Students who intend to enter professions such as agriculture, dentistry, medicine and pharmacy should consult the institutions offering the programs to determine the specific biology and other courses they require. (Also see the Transferability of Capilano Biology courses and Majoring in Biology links at the side panel.) * Not all second year courses are offered each year*.
