HONOURS PROGRAM

(73 credits)

Students enter the Honours program in U2, which is the second year of a three-year degree (students from CEGEP)  or the third year of a four-year degree (students entering directly from high school).  Enrolment in Honours in Anatomy & Cell Biology requires a minimum CGPA of 3.2 after U1 and is restricted to a limited number of students, who are chosen based on academic performance and assessment of their level of motivation in their studies. The program provides selected students with a thorough knowledge of anatomy and cell biology, as well as related biomedical sciences.  

The full program description can be found in the eCalendar:

Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) - Honours Anatomy and Cell Biology
