Program information

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.

Information regarding registration, funding, oral exam, candidacy exam, program policies and department committees can be found in Biology Grad Handbook.
