Unformatted text preview: WELCOME TO BIOPHYSICS 2009-2010 Welcome to the Biophysics Program at York University. We are honoured that you have chosen to entrust us with your university education. The Biophysics Program was constructed by the Department of Physics and Astronomy in collaboration with the Department of Biology. It is administered by the Department of Physics and Astronomy. The Program is different from any in Biology or Physics and Astronomy by virtue of its unique core requirements. Not only are there foundation courses in biology, chemistry, and physics, but enrichment comes through specialized courses in biology and physics considered to be particularly valuable to a biophysics education and unification comes through courses dedicated to biophysics. I want your experience with us to be both stimulating and productive. This Handbook and our website ( www.biophysics.yorku.ca ) will help to guide your way. In case you need it, detailed information about offerings in biology is available at the website of the Biology Department, www.yorku.ca/ugbiol . The offerings of the Physics and Astronomy Department are described comprehensively at www.physics.yorku.ca . We are committed to teaching of the highest quality. You will find that this process is enriched by our vigourous research activity, which occurs in a dazzling array of fields. Biophysics students have access to well-equipped laboratories throughout their undergraduate career. For example, a state-of-the-art laser physics laboratory serves students in third year, and a brand new biophysics laboratory will support studies in fourth year. As part of their university experience, our students also enjoy diverse opportunities for enrichment outside of the classroom. Besides the Biological Society, Pre-Med Society, Physics Society, and Astronomy Club, these include events sponsored by Norman Bethune College, the natural campus home to science students at York. Please don't hesitate to contact me for information about specific program affairs or to arrange for an appointment. I can be reached by phone at 416-736-5249 or by email to chphas@yorku.ca .
