Life Sciences

A master's degree is a postgraduate academic degree. One must already have an undergraduate degree to apply for a master's program. Most master's degree program would require students to complete a master's thesis or research paper.

Biological & life sciences is an area of science that studies how different processes, such as chemical, physical, and geological, shape how living organisms interact on earth together. Classes may include ecology, physiology, and evolution.

Canadians place great importance on learning, and have developed a first-rate education system with high standards. Not only does Canada provide a safe, clean environment, but it has been consistently ranked as one of the world’s best places to live in terms of quality of life by the UN.
