Welcome to the Faculty of Science

Situated in the heart of the Canadian prairies on Treaty 4 territory and the homeland of the Métis people, the Faculty of Science aspires to be a premier postsecondary academic unit, recognized for the significance, novelty, and impact of its research, and for the quality, relevance, and currency of its academic programs. We value excellence in research and scholarly pursuits, high-quality teaching, enthusiasm for discovery, cooperation and collaboration, community engagement, and service.

The Faculty of Science has nearly 1800 undergraduate and graduate students in academic programs leading to Bachelors, Masters, and Doctoral degrees, as well as a number of diplomas and certificates. Our work is supported by nearly ninety permanent academic staff and more than thirty administrative and scientific staff. For new, prospective, or returning students, our team in Science Student Services is knowledgeable and friendly, and can assist you with any questions you may have about your studies or our programs.

We invite you to use these webpages to further explore the Faculty of Science: our programs, our research, and our people.
