When you enroll in the undergraduate microbiology & immunology program, you’re setting yourself up for a career that makes a difference. You’ll develop an in-depth understanding that will provide you with a broad background for future study in such diverse areas as medicine and pharmaceutical studies, biotechnology and related fields.

And there’s plenty of opportunity for hands-on learning, whether you complete a co-op or honours degree that includes an original research component to our departmental seminars.

As a microbiology student, you’ll study microorganisms such as viruses, bacteria and parasites and the roles they play in our lives. Your immunology classes will help you understand how our bodies protect themselves against microbes that cause infectious diseases and tumours.
