Field Courses

EEB offers one to two field courses each year to locations such as the New World tropics, Algonquin Park, and U of T’s Koffler Scientific Reserve (north of Toronto).

We also participate in the Ontario Universities Program in Field Biology (OUPFB) which allows U of T students to take field courses offered by other universities in Ontario without having to apply for transfer credit.

COVID-19 Update Regarding Summer 2021

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the department will not be offering field courses for Summer 2021.

For UTSG students, the EEB undergraduate office will accept exceptions of other EEB fourth year (400-level) courses for those students graduating and needing a field course to complete their programs. Please contact if you have questions or concerns.
