Information for Graduate Students

We offer both Master's and Doctoral degrees in the areas of ecology and evolution, cell and molecular biology, as well as organismal physiology and biochemistry. Graduate programs are thesis-based and include both coursework and research, with an emphasis on the research.  The programs provide students with the necessary theoretical and applied foundations in their respective subdisciplines.

The Department of Biology houses advanced research facilities and instrumentation including the Environmental Quality Analysis Laboratory (EQAL), an advanced modern microscopy laboratory, a Herbarium, a modern aquatics facility, and a field station in Cypress Hills.

Our faculty and students conduct research in a wide variety of locations across Canada and elsewhere, and have national and international collaborations. The Department of Biology also has close connections and collaborations with the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, the Royal Saskatchewan Museum, the Saskatchewan Disease Control Laboratory and other local, provincial, and national agencies.
