Biology & Mathematics SSP
Understanding the evolution of drug resistant diseases draws upon knowledge of genetics, genomics, epidemiology and population ecology. These are all areas of study steeped in both Biology and Mathematics, and this example just one of many that could be used to highlight the growing need for quantitative literacy in academics, medicine, and industry. The Biology and Mathematics SSP incorporates courses from both departments and combines them with specialized courses in “BioMath” to provide an exceptional learning experience in this emerging field. See the Mathematical Biology research group for more information about the graduate students, postdocs and faculty who work and teach in this area.
Overview The BIMA-P-BSH plan, with sufficient electives to total of 120.0 units, will lead to a Bachelor of Science Honours Degree. The full calendar description can be found here or under BIMA in the Faculty of Arts & Science Calendar.
