Most graduate students at University of Saskatchewan will enter the program on September 1, but admission to begin study on January 1 or May 1 is also possible under certain circumstances. Study for the M.Sc. or Ph.D. degrees entails light course work, with the major emphasis on the development and completion of an original project in biomedical research. A full graduate thesis must be prepared and successfully defended in oral examination. The expected minimum time for completion is two years for the M.Sc. degree and four years for completion of the Ph.D. degree.
Areas of specialization for research training include:
- Molecular, Cellular and Tissue Biology
- Developmental Biology
