With over 60 graduate students, the Department of Ocean Sciences has 14 full-time, 1 Emeritus, 1 Honorary, and 2 cross-appointed faculty members. Approximately 12 researchers from outside the university, many employed in government laboratories (agriculture, fisheries, forestry, wildlife), hold adjunct appointments with the Department and contribute to the graduate program as co-supervisors and supervisory committee members. A strategic goal of the Department is to provide high-quality educational and training opportunities, particularly at the graduate level. Our graduate students are engaged in a variety of research areas including physiology, biochemistry, and molecular biology; biological and chemical oceanography; behavioural and population ecology; and aquaculture and fisheries. MSc – The MSc program involves courses and a thesis and can be completed in two years of full-time study.
