Life Sciences Programs



OUAC Code:
Bachelor of Science
4-Year BSc (Honours) Biophysics
Program Description:
Biophysics is the physics of life, of all living systems and your interaction with your surroundings, both natural and artificial. It is a relatively new but rapidly advancing field encompassing a wide variety of areas in natural and life sciences and uses all methods of scientific inquiry: theory, experiment, and large- scale computer simulation to understand living systems at the molecular level. 

Biophysics also forms the basis of many aspects of medical physics, another rapidly developing field in much demand right now. Brock’s Biophysics program will provide you with a superb learning environment and exciting research opportunities. Extended research opportunities are available through Brock’s participation in the Biophysics Interdepartmental Group (BIG) based at the University of Guelph.
