Students enroll in one or more Program(s) of Study (POSts) after their first year (after completing 4.0 full-course equivalents). To graduate, students must complete either one Specialist, two Majors, or one Major and two Minors. Other degree requirements are described in the Faculty of Arts and Science Calendar. For more information on enrolling in programs, please see the Faculty's Program Toolkit.

All of our programs are Type 1 programs. Type 1 programs have no enrolment requirements other than successful completion of four full-course equivalents (4.0 FCEs). No application is required so you can add our programs anytime during the program enrolment period.

EEB offers the following programs:

EEB also jointly offers four programs:

  • Biology – Specialist, Major and Minor (with Cell & Systems Biology) 
  • Genome Biology – Major (with Cell & Systems Biology and Molecular Genetics)
For advising in the EEB and Biology programs consult the EEB Undergraduate Office.
For advising for the Genome Biology Major program consult the CSB Undergraduate Office.

Note about Biology Minor [joint program with the National University of Singapore (NUS)]:

Are you interested in student exchange in Singapore that will earn you a Minor? The Biology Minor joint with NUS can do that! Here is a list of recent courses offered at NUS in biology. To participate, you should follow these steps:
  1. Choose the NUS Biology Minor (ASMIN2730) when you log in to ACORN. Follow the steps to Apply for Permission to Enrol in a Type 3 Program.
  2. Your record will be checked for eligibility, then it will get added as a program.
  3. Contact the Center for International Experience (CIE) for logistical help in preparing and coordinating your exchange to NUS (
  4. Tuition to U of T directly transfers for courses taken at NUS as part of the program, but apply for bursaries through CIE or your College to defray travel and accommodation costs.
  5. Upon completion of your exchange, contact the Transfer Credit Office to have your NUS courses counted for credit on your U of T transcript.
