Wild Flowers (plant taxonomy) is the study of flowering plants and some of their nonflowering relatives such as ferns and conifers. Close attention is paid to reproductive structures, identification, classification, phylogenetic relationships, and plant habitats.

Wild Flowers is a field-oriented course and students must participate in a nine-day workshop held in June/July at the Kananaskis Field Station at Barrier Lake (70 km west of Calgary). Students are responsible for paying their own board and lodging (approximately $350) in addition to course tuition. Students must register in time for a June 1 start date. The course ends August 31 and students will have no option to extend. More information is listed in the workshop details.

BIOL 401 focuses on essential principles and processes in cell biology and integrates these in the context of molecular biology. This senior-level course considers cell structure and function, bioenergetics, membranes, molecular genetics, and intercellular signalling.
Biology 480 discusses the components of the immune system and presents the immune mechanisms critical to immune function. It also covers the immune response to infection and the diseases that result when immunity is compromised or non-functional. It introduces current methods of studying immunity and the clinical applications in the field.
