KPU announces accreditation for two biology programs


Two of Kwantlen Polytechnic University’s biology programs have gained accreditation from the BC College of Applied Biology. KPU’s bachelor of science major in biology and bachelor of science (honours) major in biology were accredited. This means that graduates of these programs can add Biologist in Training to their resume immediately or add Registered Professional Biologist (RPBio) to their resume after three years of work experience. “There are only a handful of post-secondary institutions in BC whose biology programs are accredited by the college, so this is very prestigious for KPU and demonstrates the value of our programs for students interested in careers in applied biology,” said KPU Faculty of Science and Horticulture dean Brett Favaro.
