About

Memorial University’s Department of Biology is home to over 100 graduate students along with 30 full-time faculty members and numerous cross-appointment faculty from other academic departments. This master degree in Biology is available at the Memorial University of Newfoundland. 

Overview

Approximately 20 researchers from outside Memorial University of Newfoundlan, many employed in government laboratories (agriculture, fisheries, forestry, and wildlife), hold adjunct appointments with the Department and contribute to the graduate program as co-supervisors and supervisory committee members.

Faculty and graduate students of the Biology Department at Memorial University of Newfoundland engage in diverse research in both lab and field settings.

This diversity is broadened through our cross-appointed and adjunct faculty. You can appreciate this diversity by visiting websites of regular, cross-appointed, and adjunct faculty.

Biology is also part of the interdisciplinary Cognitive and Behavioural Ecology (CABE) program, which offers both the M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees. Interested students should apply directly to the CABE program.
