The minor in Animal Biology is intended for students who wish to further their studies in the basic biology of large mammals and birds. Students study animal physiology and function, reproduction and nutrition, immunology, genetics and biotechnology and its uses with animals. Successful completion of the minor program should provide students with a sound background in the field of biomedical studies and the use of animal models. It should also qualify students to apply to most veterinary colleges in North America, to study in a variety of postgraduate biology programs, and to work in many laboratory settings.

Note: The Minor is not open to students in B.Sc.(Ag.Env.Sc.) programs. These students may register for the specialization in Animal Biology.
