Graduate Student Programs

The Department of Biological Sciences offers both M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees. Students interested in a graduate program in the department should contact a potential supervisor from among the departmental research areas. Once the student has a supervisor in place the student can then apply for admission to the Faculty of Graduate Studies. Potential students should consult the Graduate Student Regulations for admission requirements. All current and potential graduate students should review the award and scholarship opportunities available.
