Welcome to the Faculty of Science

The Faculty of Science represents one of the strongest academic areas at the University of Regina. It attracts more than half of all the tri-council research funding and holds four Canada Research Chairs. With the need for scientific and technical skills in the 21st century, students will find that the strengths of the Faculty make it an attractive one in which to further their education.

We offer undergraduate and graduate programs through six departments. To find out more about each department, please select a departmental website listed in the left navigation.

More Photos from the Field

Biology M.Sc. student Caroline Hamelin is inspecting a young red oak she planted in May 2014, in a field experiment (located in the Eastern Townships of southern Quebec) designed to test the hypothesis that glossy buckthorn (an introduced invasive shrub) is reducing the growth of tree regeneration and of native forest herbs. Caroline comes to the University of Regina with a graduate scholarship from the Province of Quebec and she is supervised by Dr. Daniel Gagnon, Dean of Science. See photos of her experiment and others here.

Fieldwork in Biology

Several Biology researchers have taken advantage of the summer months to conduct their fieldwork and have sent back some images. Here we see researchers stringing a net to catch and tag bats and, using radar to monitor their movement. We can also see a group of students taking a break on their field course and faculty members search for new field stations in Costa Rica. See photos here.
