The College of Biological Science offers a number of ways for students to gain field experience. There are three distinct courses that will take students off campus to various locations across Canada. These courses are offered within the Department of Integrative Biology. These courses include, Field Ecology (BIOL 4410), Arctic Ecology (BIOL 4610) and Marine Biology and Oceanography (ZOO 4300). Details regarding each of these courses can be found on the Integrative Biology website
The School of Environmental Science also offers a number of field courses under the ENVS subject area. BSc. students are eligible to select these courses as well. Students should confirm with their program counsellor how these courses will apply towards their degree requirements.
Students can also participate in the Ontario Universities Field Biology Program (OUPFB). This program allows Guelph students to apply to field courses offered by other Ontario Universities and apply the credit back to their degree. More information regarding these opportunities can be found on the OUPFB website
