where is laurentian university
Where is Laurentian University?
  • Laurentian University is located in Sudbury, Ontario. It has 550 hectares of natural surroundings and is an ideal location for environmental studies. There are many lakes in the immediate area and four of the five lake types border the campus. Biking, walking, skiing and hiking trails inundate the area for your pleasure.
classroom settings in biology
Classroom settings in Biology
  • The first year is a common year to Biology students who wish to pursue dynamic programs.
  • Upper year courses have smaller group compositions ideal for interactive learning with fascinating faculty, staff and graduate students.

There are specialized laboratories for specific research needs. From cell line work and bacteriology to invertebrate and vertebrate research, laboratories are set up to meet the needs of the projects.

Course laboratories provide technical support, new microscopes and equipped facilities for a learning environment.

laboratories indoors and outdoors
Laboratories indoors and outdoors
  • Biology includes field trips in the geographical area as well as indoor laboratory sessions.
the fourth year
The fourth year…
  • In their fourth year, students can choose a course to research and write a thesis. One component of this course is a fall camp often carried out at Killarney or Grundy Provincial Park.
after the fourth year
After the fourth year…
  • Biology offers a graduate program at the Masters level (MSc). Undergraduates are encouraged to apply.
  • Biology also offers a graduate program at the PhD level. Graduates are encouraged to apply.
