Students in the Applied Biology1 program explore the real-world application of the life sciences to the management of soil, plants, animals and food production. The program emphasizes critical thinking, practical involvement, and a systems approach that integrates technical knowledge with sustainability and ethics. The program equips graduates with the skills and knowledge to become leaders in animal biology and welfare, sustainable food production, and the responsible use of natural resources.

1The Bachelor of Science in Applied Biology (offered by the Faculty of Land and Food Systems) is distinct from both the Bachelor of Applied Science and the Bachelor of Science degrees.
