A research thesis-based program designed for graduates of four-year B.Sc. programs.

The program learning outcomes broadly encompass developing critical thinking, analytical, and communication skill sets while expanding and advancing knowledge in the field of biological sciences. The proposed program has a special focus on effective science communication, which addresses the growing need for scientists that are capable of translating what is often technical work, to the general population. Students will develop the required expertise to effectively communicate scientific research to a variety of academic and non-academic audiences.

Students will complete: 1) two courses (6 credits), including a required course in Science Communication and an elective course; and 2) an independent research thesis including a general literature review, at least one publishable manuscript and a general discussion. Students will be guided in course selection and research development by a supervisor and a thesis committee of at least three members.
