Animal Biosciences (ABSc) is a research oriented Department with dynamic hands on educational programs for both undergraduates and graduate students. Research and teaching programs in ABSc revolve around the basic sciences relevant to animal development and wellbeing. Our Department receives $6-7million in research funding each year which is used in part to support around 100 graduate students at any one time enrolled in MSc and PhD programs. Our graduate student population represents over 20 different countries which reflects our many international connections and collaborations.

We have four centres of excellence:
-Aquaculture Centre
-Centre for Genetic Improvement of Livestock
-Centre for Nutritional Modeling
-Centre for the Study of Animal Welfare

ABSc offers two different flavours of MSc programs; an MSc by Coursework and Major Paper and an MSc by Thesis. We also offer a PhD program. Our MSc by Coursework and Major paper program is a one-year program for advanced training in specialized aspects of the animal sciences. The MSc by Thesis program is a two-year program designed for students interested in advanced research and potentially heading for an academic path. Our PhD program is a three-year program for advanced academic and specialized research
training. All of our graduate programs offer “hands on” experiential learning opportunities for research with animals to complement our wide range of graduate courses. Faculty in our Department carry out research in the broad areas of animal nutrition, physiology, genetics and behaviour and welfare.

We live in a visual culture. In everything around us, from the workplace to public spaces and through our multiple forms of leisure and learning, the visual is instrumental and ubiquitous. In this image saturated society, it is becoming increasingly essential to learn tools to negotiate the visual.

The MA in Art History and Visual Culture examines the production and consumption of images, objects, and spaces from varied cultures and historical periods. It challenges many ideas about cognition and perception, and includes the study of the ocular. Because the visual is crucial to our understandings of cultural difference, Art History and Visual Culture Studies is vitally concerned with the manner in which the interdependent elements of race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, and class construct identity. It demands that we think across cultures and national boundaries, and within a global context. Intercultural visual analysis necessarily questions conceptions of “high” and “low” culture and requires that we substantially change the ways in which we practice the discipline of Art History.

Towards this end, the objectives of the MA program are:
1. To enable students to gain a command of visual literacy through global and critical understandings of art and its cultures and histories
2. To combine art historical methodology and visual and material culture perspectives in the study of objects – both past and present
3. To explore critically the assumptions underpinning writing about art and visual culture

[[Graduate Student Funding[[
Assistantships and scholarships will be awarded through an application protocol devised and supervised by the Graduate Studies Committee. All students are expected to apply for and to receive two Teaching Assistantships during his/her program of study. Students will be encouraged to apply for additional internal and external financial support.

The CCJP MA program is a collaborative program between the Department of Sociology and Anthropology and the Department of Political Science. Read more
The CCJP MA program is a collaborative program between the Department of Sociology and Anthropology and the Department of Political Science. The program distinguishes itself from other MA programs in Criminology by having a strong emphasis on criminal justice and governance, while still providing students with the necessary background for continued studies in Criminology, Sociology or Political Science.

In addition to providing the appropriate background for continued graduate studies in Criminology, Sociology or Political Science, the program has a number of other benefits. First, the program provides students with the background necessary to enter into employment or advance their careers in the criminal justice system, either in a policy or administrative capacity for government or non-governmental organizations, or as front-line service providers (police officers, probation officers and corrections officers). Students might also find employment as instructors at colleges that offer criminal justice programs. Second, the program equips students with general tools in critical thinking, communication and methodology, which would be useful for employment or educational opportunities beyond the criminal justice field. Finally, the program aims to develop citizens and professionals who will be able to make and express thoughtful judgments on a range of important issues raised in the context of criminology and criminal justice policy and governance.
