Graduate Programs

Our five departments accept students for research-based post-graduate study at the masters and doctoral levels across a broad array of both basic and applied research.

Prospective graduate students wishing to attend the University of Saskatchewan must apply through the College of Graduate Studies but the recommendation for acceptance is made by the department.

Before applying, prospective graduate students should identify and contact a potential supervisor with a similar research area of interest to their own to determine whether any positions are available ( not a requirement for Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics). 

Agricultural Economics (M.Sc., Ph.D.)

Animal and Poultry Science (M.Sc., Ph.D.)

Food Science and Applied Microbiology (M.Sc., Ph.D.)

Plant Sciences (M.Sc., Ph.D., Dual Ph.D.)

Soil Science (M.Sc., Ph.D.)

Students in the Plants Sciences Ph.D. degree program have the option to complete a dual Ph.D. degree. Students complete one thesis with two co-supervisors (one from each institution) and a joint committee composed of faculty from both institutions.  After fulfillment of all requirements, Ph.D. degrees are awarded from each of the United Graduate School of Agricultural Sciences (Japan) and the U of S in the field of plant sciences.  Students pay tuition to their home institution and are based approximately half of the time at each institution.
