Academic Programs--Graduate

Director of Graduate Studies: Dr. L.C. Cwynar (

The Biology Department offers qualified students the opportunity to work toward either a Master of Science (MSc) or a Doctoral degree, which at UNB is traditionally called a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) rather than a Doctor of Science degree. These degrees are centered on the development and performance of an original research project. Typically, some specialized and individualized course work is included in each student's program.

At UNB, graduate studies in Biology is administered by the Biology Graduate Academic Unit (GAU) which includes the biology research staff of the UNB Fredericton and UNB Saint John campuses. We also have numerous Research Associates and Adjunct Professors at outside research institutions, all of whom can co-supervise graduate students through UNB. Adjunct professors are included in the list of GAU Faculty Members below.
