Study Biology at King's

Dig deeper into biology by studying living organisms and their relationships. The Biology degree at King's explores the origin, growth, reproduction, structure, and functions of living and non-living matter. By better understanding biology, you'll uncover what proper stewardship of creation looks like.

Biology students study wild and wonderful creatures in their natural habitats and explore the many mechanisms behind human health and heredity. Laboratory experience and hands-on field research are central parts of the program. Conduct field research in the Rocky Mountains, analyze DNA, grow plants, rear fish, or use biological proxies to reconstruct past climates. From human anatomy to plant ecology, biology courses take you deep into the makeup of God's creation.

Biology Program Highlights

  • Use advanced lab equipment from the beginning of your program.
  • Conduct research in the university's laboratory facilities and field research throughout the greater Edmonton area.
  • Learn applied skills through courses in human, animal and ecological biology.
  • Work in close proximity with your professors as you explore the origin, growth, reproduction, structure, function, and interrelationships of living organisms.
  • Discover connections between creation and human stewardship and why these relationships are so important.
  • Participate in a study abroad opportunity through the Au Sable Institute of Environmental Studies with field stations across North America.
