Studying Biology at the University of Regina
Our scientific facilities include an aquatics facility, a field station in the Cypress Hills, the Environmental Quality Analysis Laboratory (EQAL), Institute of Environmental Change and Society (IECS) and the recently-established Institute for Microbial Systems and Society. IECS provides world-class infrastructure and research expertise in environmental sciences via state-of-the-art microscopy, proteomics and genomics facilities. Additionally, we frequently collaborate with researchers at the Royal Saskatchewan Museum, the Saskatchewan Disease Control Laboratory and several other scientific organizations in Southern Saskatchewan.
We offer high-quality undergraduate and graduate programs. The undergraduate programs have strong hands-on components as many courses include laboratories developed and overseen by four full-time laboratory instructors. Junior and senior students also benefit from small classes (10 - 30 students). We have an active honours program, a co-op program and many opportunities for students to participate in research projects. Accessible, modern research facilities put our PhD and MSc students at the forefront in their fields. Our graduate students benefit from working in a close-knit, supportive environment that encourages innovative science.
Our programs offer experiential learning in the classroom, lab, and field settings. Undergraduates have the opportunity to do their own, independent research projects, learning alongside graduate students and experienced faculty, while our graduate students can build their skills working closely with supervisors who will guide and support their growth as researchers.
