Some of our third and fourth year courses include:
  11. 11. Programs in Biological Sciences Entry requirements after First Year <ul><li>Complete (pass) 4 credits (8 courses) which must include: </li></ul><ul><li> Introductory Biology: Part I </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Introductory Biology: Part 2 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Introductory Chemistry: Part 1 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Introductory Chemistry: Part 2 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>One course in mathematics or statistics </li></ul></ul><ul><li>2) A cumulative grade point average (CGPA) of at least 2.0 (“C” average) </li></ul><ul><li>Some programs are highly competitive and may require a higher CGPA for entry. </li></ul>
  12. 12. Applying to a Biology Program <ul><li>There are two subject post (program) application periods per year: </li></ul><ul><li>1) Early April to early May. </li></ul><ul><li>2) Early July to early August. </li></ul><ul><li>Go on to your ROSI (Repository of Student Information) account and select </li></ul><ul><li>the subject post that identifies the program of study that you wish to pursue </li></ul><ul><li>(you may select more than one subject post). </li></ul><ul><li>Admission decisions are announced in mid-June and mid-September. </li></ul>Follow this link for information and instruction.
  13. 13. Pre-Requisites, Co-Requisites and Exclusions BGYB10H3 Cell Biology This course is designed to introduce theory and modern experimental techniques in cell biology. Emphasis will be on eukaryotic cells. Structure and function of major animal and plant organelles will be covered. Subsequent topics include the role of the cytoskeleton. Exclusion: BGYB10Y , BIO250Y Prerequisite: [ BGYA01H & BGYA02H ] & [ CHMA10H & CHMA11H ] <ul><li>A pre-requisite must be taken before you can take the course in question. </li></ul><ul><li>A co-requisite must be taken before or at the same time. </li></ul><ul><li>You cannot take, for credit, a course for which you have taken an exclusion. </li></ul>Must be taken prior to taking BGYB10H You cannot take BGYB10H if you have taken these courses
  14. 14. Physics and Biology Programs <ul><li>In this case you can take PHYA01H (Basic Physics). </li></ul><ul><li>This course is intended for students who did not take </li></ul><ul><li>grade 12 physics. It is worth 0.5 credit. </li></ul><ul><li>You can take this course in your first semester (fall 2008). </li></ul><ul><li>You can then take PHYA10H in the spring 2009 semester. </li></ul><ul><li>PHYA22H can then be taken in the summer or at a later date </li></ul><ul><li>(this course is required in the human biology program). </li></ul>I want to enter a biology program that requires physics but I didn’t take grade 12 physics. What can I do?
  15. 15. Taking Courses at the Other U of T Campuses <ul><li>You may take up to 5.0 credits of courses in the other Arts and </li></ul><ul><li>Science Divisions at the Univ. of Toronto (St. George & UTM). </li></ul><ul><li>No more than 1.0 of your first 4.0 credits may be taken at the </li></ul><ul><li>other two campuses. </li></ul><ul><li>Students are responsible for confirming (by looking at the UTSC </li></ul><ul><li>calendar) whether or not a course at another campus is an </li></ul><ul><li>exclusion to a UTSC course that has already been taken. </li></ul><ul><li>You need permission from your program supervisor to replace a </li></ul><ul><li>UTSC program requirement with a course from another campus. </li></ul>
  16. 16. Summer Courses <ul><li>Summer courses were initially established so that co-op </li></ul><ul><li>students could complete their degree in four years. </li></ul><ul><li>Summer courses are useful if you have failed or dropped a </li></ul><ul><li>course that you need as a pre-requisite to courses the </li></ul><ul><li>following year. </li></ul><ul><li>Not all courses are offered in the summer. Consult the </li></ul><ul><li>course calendar and/or your program supervisor if you are </li></ul><ul><li>planning on putting off a course until the summer. </li></ul><ul><li>Medical schools do count summer courses but they don’t like </li></ul><ul><li>students using them to lighten their course loads in the fall </li></ul><ul><li>and winter semesters. </li></ul>
  17. 17. Components of a Course <ul><li>Depending upon the particular course, the following are </li></ul><ul><li>general course components: </li></ul><ul><li>Lectures (usually 2 hours per week).* </li></ul><ul><li>Laboratory/practical sessions (3 hours every week or every </li></ul><ul><li>second week). </li></ul><ul><li>Tutorials (the role of tutorials differ in different courses). </li></ul>*, Lecture etiquette is very important. You should not talk as this disturbs other students. Cell phones ringers must be turned off and phones must not be answered.
  18. 18. How will I be evaluated? <ul><li>Depending upon the particular course, the following are </li></ul><ul><li>used as evaluation tools: </li></ul><ul><li>Midterm examination (1 or 2 per course). </li></ul><ul><li>Final examination (1 per course). </li></ul><ul><li>Lab reports (in courses with lab sections).* </li></ul><ul><li>Quizzes. </li></ul><ul><li>Written assignments or oral presentations.* </li></ul>*make sure that you are familiar with the university’s rules on plagiarism. University rules prohibit the presence of cell phones in an exam.
  19. 19. How will I be evaluated? <ul><li>You are assigned a mark (percentage) in each course. </li></ul><ul><li>This percentage is then converted to a letter grade. </li></ul><ul><li>The letter grade is then converted to a grade point value. </li></ul><ul><li>Grade point values are then used to calculate your </li></ul><ul><li>grade point average (GPA). </li></ul>
  20. 20. How will I be evaluated? Percentage 90-100 85-89 80-84 77-79 73-76 70-72 67-69 63-66 60-62 57-59 53-56 50-52 0-49 Letter Grade A+ A A- B+ B B- C+ C C- D+ D D- F Grade Point Value 4.0 4.0 3.7 3.3 3.0 2.7 2.3 2.0 1.7 1.3 1.0 0.7 1.0 Definition Excellent Excellent Excellent Good Good Good Adequate Adequate Adequate Marginal Marginal Marginal Wholly Inadequate
  21. 21. Who are my course instructors? <ul><li>Tenured or tenure-track faculty (Assistant Professors; </li></ul><ul><li>Associate Professors and Full Professors) who are all </li></ul><ul><li>active researchers. </li></ul><ul><li>Full-time lecturers (teach but do not do research) </li></ul><ul><li>Sessional lecturers (replacement instructors hired when </li></ul><ul><li>a regular course instructor is on leave). </li></ul><ul><li>Teaching assistants (Masters or PhD students; occasionally </li></ul><ul><li>a fourth year undergraduate student) </li></ul>
  22. 22. What does a university professor do? <ul><li>40% Research </li></ul><ul><li>40% Teaching (one course per semester; supervising </li></ul><ul><li>graduate and undergraduate research students). </li></ul><ul><li>20% Administration </li></ul><ul><li>Every faculty member in the Department of Biological </li></ul><ul><li>Sciences runs an externally-funded research program. </li></ul><ul><li>Research lab personnel include graduate (MSc and PhD </li></ul><ul><li>students; undergraduate thesis students; post-doctoral </li></ul><ul><li>fellows and technicians). </li></ul>
  23. 23. Communicating with your Professors <ul><li>Different professors like to communicate in different ways. </li></ul><ul><li>Every professor holds designated office hours each week </li></ul><ul><li>which time students may drop by to ask questions or seek </li></ul><ul><li>advice. </li></ul><ul><li>Short questions are easily asked via e-mail. Questions that </li></ul><ul><li>require long answers or explanations should be asked in person. </li></ul><ul><li>Most professors do not like to receive phone calls as multiple </li></ul><ul><li>calls can be highly disruptive. </li></ul><ul><li>E-mails must NOT be sent in text-message format. Such </li></ul><ul><li>messages will be deleted and not answered. </li></ul>
  24. 24. Where do I go for advice or to solve problems? In first year you should consult the Pre-Program coordinator, Sean Ramrattan. <ul><li>Once you are in a biology program (major or specialist) you should consult with the Program Supervisor. </li></ul><ul><li>Integrative Biology Dr. Kamini Persaud [email_address] </li></ul><ul><li>Cell & Molecular Biology Dr. Clare Hasenkampf [email_address] </li></ul><ul><li>Human Biology Dr. Kamini Persaud [email_address] </li></ul><ul><li>Conservation Biology Dr. Lisa Manne [email_address] </li></ul><ul><li>Paramedicine Dr. Stephen Reid [email_address] </li></ul><ul><li>Industrial Microbiology Dr. Roberta Fulthorpe [email_address] </li></ul>Program supervisors will give advice on course selection, course sequences, replacement courses and any other program-related concern).
  25. 25. What happens when I have met all the requirements for my degree? Follow this link for information and instruction. <ul><li>If you are registered in, or have already successfully completed </li></ul><ul><li>the correct number of credits for the Degree Post you are </li></ul><ul><li>registered in then you must signal your intent to graduate. </li></ul><ul><li>Information is available on the Registrar’s web site. </li></ul>
