Master of Science in Bioscience, Technology and Public Policy

This graduate program gives students advanced training in life sciences fields ranging from genomics and bioinformatics to natural resource management. Students receive hands-on training in their discipline which provides them with preparation and skills to work in academia and industry. This program takes advantage of the new Science Complex provides UWinnipeg students with access to innovative technology and laboratories. The program develops communication skills to facilitate interaction with managers, policy-makers and the public, and students learn to place the results of their science in the broader context of society at large.

This program meets growing local, national and international demands in both the health and environmental sciences. Winnipeg is the nexus for health sciences research with the development of BioMed City, growing research capacity in the biotechnology industry, and the presence of provincial and federal government health agencies. Interest in the environmental sciences is similarly growing rapidly, and our graduate program will coincide with launch of the Richardson College for the Environment at the University of Winnipeg.
