The Department of Biology at University of Saskatchewan offers thesis-based programs that can be completed in two to three years for a M.Sc., based on full-time study.
Our department has active research programs in a diverse range of sub-disciplines. We have three areas of particular focus and strength:
- Structure and function
- Biodiversity and evolution
- Ecology and the environment
This program encourages collaboration with other colleges in our university such as the Western College of Veterinary Medicine, the College of Medicine, or the College of Agriculture and Bioresources. We also have close connections with government institutions located on campus such as the Prairie and Northern Wildlife Centre and the Plant Biotechnology Institute. At the University of Saskatchewan, you will have the opportunity to both access world class research facilities and engage with local communities when conducting your research.
