Somerville Secondary College


The study of Biology focuses on living things from complex multi-cellular to single celled micro-organisms. Students study the relationships between living things, their interactions with the non-living environment, and the processes that maintain life and ensure its continuity. Biology enables students to understand that despite the diverse ways of meeting the challenges of survival, all living things have many structural and functional characteristics in common. They build an understanding of the interconnectedness of all living things and their environment. The study of Biology prepares students for continuing studies in Bioscience and entry into the workforce in a wide range of careers.
