Undergraduate Studies

Welcome to the Department of Anatomy & Cell Biology!

Our Department offers undergraduate courses in cell biology, histology, embryology, neuroanatomy, and gross human anatomy.  A Bachelor of Science (BSc) degree in Anatomy and Cell Biology (ACB) provides an excellent preparation for technical and administrative positions in university laboratories, research institutions, hospitals, pharmaceutics, and biotechnological industries.  All of our undergraduate programs form a sound background for graduate studies or for professional training in areas such as medicine and the health sciences.

We offer three different undergraduate programs in Anatomy & Cell Biology, at varying levels of specialization and flexibility, which allow students to tailor their studies based on their interests.

The Honours program is designed as the first phase in the training for a career as a cell and molecular biologist and includes a required 9-credit Honours Research Project.

The Major and Liberal programs offer decreasing levels of specialization in Anatomy and Cell Biology, with a broader knowledge base in other biological sciences. Students select their Complementary Courses from a broad list and can integrate different research opportunities as electives or for program credit.


The Career Planning Service is a great resource for career exploration and development, and they've put together some helpful documents on PDF icon ACB career options and PDF icon career resources for ACB students
