The COVID-19 pandemic has shown how important science is to understand the SARS-CoV-2 virus, debunk health myths, combat illness, and research cures. Scientific discoveries can affect millions of lives—we see that throughout history and more recently, when the first person in the world received the COVID-19 vaccine in 2020, no small feat given the intense timeline to develop the vaccine.

If a career in biology fascinates you and you want to use knowledge to change the world, Tyndale University’s biology program will develop your critical thinking skills and deliver a standard of academic excellence that will help set you apart from the crowd.

Combining the intimacy of small class sizes with quality instruction, Tyndale’s teaching faculty are able to fully invest in students and help them toward achieving academic success and future careers.

“Students should enroll in this program if they have a desire to study science in a small classroom environment with a close connection to the professors and their fellow students,” says Prof. Joseph Bishay, sessional lecturer in biology and chemistry since 2014. “In the majority of biology programs in Canada, classes have hundreds or thousands of students and the individual student is lost in the crowd. This doesn’t happen at Tyndale and vastly increases their chances of academic success.”

After completing Tyndale’s two-year course offerings, students apply directly to programs such as dentistry and pharmacy, or continue their studies at our partner institution, Nipissing University. Students have also successfully applied and transferred credits to the University of Toronto, York University, University of Ottawa, and Ryerson University toward their Bachelor of Science degree.

“Tyndale provided a strong foundation of academic learning that prepared me well for my future," says Kailey Willock, who studied biology at Tyndale from 2017-2019. “I appreciated my professors and their support in achieving my dreams.”

While at Tyndale, Willock led study groups for second-year chemistry students and enjoyed cultivating relationships with faculty and peers. She is now preparing to graduate this spring from the University of Ottawa and will be applying for a Midwifery Education Program in the fall of 2021.

Tyndale’s biology program will equip students for a future career in pharmacy, dentistry, medicine, veterinary medicine, or teaching. Interested candidates can apply anytime, online, at www.tyndale.ca/apply or contact Admissions at https://www.tyndale.ca/talk with any questions.
