A series of advanced 3.0 unit courses with emphasis on reading and/or experimental enquiry carried out independently by each student. Regular meetings in small groups with staff provide direction in developing approaches to particular topics. Evaluation is based primarily on oral presentations and written reports. 500-level offerings will be announced in advance for students in their third year. It should be noted that not all seminar courses will be offered in a given year. Offerings may vary from year to year depending on availability of staff and student interest. Normally, due to enrolment restrictions, students taking BIOL 537 will be permitted to take only one of these seminar courses (pending space) and all other fourth-year students will be permitted to take a maximum of two.
NOTE Not all BIOL 500-level courses will be offered in a given year.
BIOL 501/3.0 to 536/3.0 Offerings for 2015-16 (not yet available)
Please note that every effort will be made to satisfy everyone a first or second choice, however, depending on demand of individual seminars this may not be possible. Preference will be given to students who require for degree program (i.e. students not doing a BIOL 537 thesis project). Please make sure that you read the course descriptions carefully and that you have the pre/co-requisites for the seminar courses you pick.
