INTRODUCTION TO LIFE SCIENCE PROGRAMS
Recent advances in technology and practical applications have ushered in a golden age for Life Science, spanning academia, industry, medicine and agriculture. Accordingly we can expect to see sustained demand for the graduates produced by the different programs within the Division of Life Science (LIFS). Life Science can be studied at multiple levels and can therefore accommodate a wide range of student aptitudes and motivation. Curricula for the distinctive LIFS programs reflect this reality and are tailored for students either with a general interest in Life Science (BISC Program) or for those attracted to more specialised studies of either applied (BIOT Program) or basic Life Science (BCB Program). In addition there is sufficient flexibility for students to switch between LIFS majors should their interests change. Besides subject knowledge and academic rigor, LIFS graduates will value effective communication skills, independent learning and scientific integrity.
