All first-year Science courses will be delivered virtually for Winter 2021. Due to the COVID-19 provincial lock-down, all students who were expecting in-person labs, should check their McMaster e-mail for important winter announcements..

Biology 3R03/4J03 – Field Biology I/ II

Course Coordinator: Dr. Jianping (JP) Xu

Course Administrator: Tania Baricevic

The Department of Biology participates in two programs that provide students the unique opportunity to gain field biology experience locally and around the world.

Both programs allow a McMaster student to take field courses offered by other universities in Ontario (OUPFB) and through Operation Wallacea (OPWALL) without having to apply for transfer credit (letter of permission courses).

It is possible to earn credit in BIOLOGY 3R03 (co-requisite 3RF0) and 4J03 (co-requisite 4JF0)

For specific detail about each program’s procedures, please see the following links:
