Graduate programs in the Faculty of Science are both extensive and challenging. The Faculty of Science has identified nine inspirational challenge areas where we will make a direct impact, engage the community, and train future scientists who will lead the way forward. We invite you to explore our graduate programs to see how you can participate in these challenges and become part of our ecosystem.
MSc. and PhD. programs are available in all seven departments in the Faculty. Doing interdisciplinary research is also possible. Options exist to work with individual faculty members, in labs, or as part of the larger research group. While most graduate-level research is done on the Fort Garry campus, there are also opportunities to work at other institutions/labs as part of research collaborations, or cooperatively with industry via internships and other programs.
Graduate studies are very diverse and somewhat more flexible than undergraduate studies. Under the guidance of your supervisor, your program can be tailored to meet shared interests and needs. Strong research groups and programs are available in every department. The following pages will guide you through the different options available in the Faculty of Science, indicating how to take the next steps in applying to the program that best suits you.
