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.
