With 25+ regular faculty members, and 60+ graduate students, Biology is one of the largest departments in the Faculty of Science. A number of our faculty members are also members of the Neuroscience graduate program, and the Centre for Forest Biology.
We offer MSc and PhD degrees. Both are full-time, research-intensive programs, culminating in a master’s thesis and PhD dissertation, respectively.
M.Sc. degrees are typically 2-2.5 years in length. PhD degrees are typically 4-5 years in length. Students in the MSc program can request to transfer to the PhD program, with approval of their supervisory committee, and within the appropriate timeline.
