Life Sciences

An understanding of the tapestry of life comes not from a single discipline, but is woven from all of the Life Sciences: biochemistry, cell biology, genomics, developmental biology, kinesiology, neurobiology, psychology, ecology, and earth sciences. The avalanche of information available from these fields allows scientists to look at biological systems in unprecedented detail. This growing knowledge needs to be integrated across disciplines to understand organisms and their place in the ecosystem. This multi-disciplinary approach to studying the Life Sciences provides students with a broad perspective for problem-solving and to undertake post-graduate research in an emerging life science field.
