Biology for Health Sciences - Major (Science)

This program focuses on areas of biological science that relate to the health of humans and will provide a strong foundation for students interested in pursuing a career in the health sciences.

Enrolment in this program is limited to students who have completed 4.0 credits (including BIO152H5 and BIO153H5) and who have achieved a CGPA of at least 2.5. All students (including transfer students) must complete 4.0 UTM credits before requesting this program.

Note: CGPA for enrolment in this program is calculated based on a minimum of 4.0 credits completed at UTM with final percentage grades (i.e. CR/ NCR courses are not applicable).

8.5 credits are required including at least 2.0 at the 300/400 level.
