In UBC’s Bachelor of Science in Applied Biology, you will explore the real-world application of the life sciences to the management
of land, animals and food production. Applied Biology at the Faculty of Land and Food Systems is different from other
biological sciences programs: you can customize it to learn about what’s most interesting to you. The program is
built around practical learning experiences, critical thinking, and a systems approach that integrates technical
knowledge with sustainability and ethics. You’ll graduate with the skills and knowledge to take a leadership role
in sustainable food production and the responsible use of land, water and animals.
