Research courses provide students with the opportunity to participate in a faculty member's research project. Students gain experience in project design; data collection, analysis, and interpretation; and scientific communication. Visit Recent Published Research by EEB Undergrads for an overview of recent undergraduate publications resulting from research projects, field courses and summer research fellowships.

Seminar courses involve discussions of special topics and academic papers in a small group setting. 

Get hands-on experience in the field, while getting to know your peers and professors better. EEB offers field courses in Algonquin, the Koffler Scientific Reserve, and the New World Tropics. You can also participate in the Ontario Universities Program in Field Biology, which allows students to participate in field courses offered by other universities.
