Undergraduate Degree Programs

The Department offers undergraduate Honours and 4-Year B.Sc. programs in Cellular, Physiological and Pharmacological Sciences (CPPS) and in Biomedical Neuroscience (NEUR). In addition, we participate in offering a 3-Year B.Sc. program in Biomedical Foundations in conjunction with the Department of Biochemistry, Microbiology & Immunology. Although we are located in the College of Medicine, these B.Sc. degrees are awarded by the College of Arts and Science.

Cellular, Physiological and Pharmacological Sciences

This program encompasses the study of the structure, function and development of organisms at the molecular, subcellular, cellular, tissue and organ levels. It investigates the functions and mechanisms of major systems of the human body and studies the effects and mode of action of drugs which modify major body systems.

Biomedical Neuroscience

Biomedical neuroscience is the study of molecular and cellular neuroscience, systems and sensory neuroscience, behavioural and cognitive neuroscience, neurophysiology and neuroanatomy.

Biomedical Foundations
B.Sc. (three-year degree)

Biomedical foundations provides students with a strong foundation of multidisciplinary training in biomedical science while providing flexibility for initial specialization within a particular biomedical science.

Note: Our previous undergraduate major programs in Anatomy and Cell Biology (ACB) and Physiology and Pharmacology (PHPY) are no longer accepting new students. However, students currently enrolled in those majors will be able to complete their degrees.

Graduate Degree Programs

Research in Anatomy, Physiology, and Pharmacology (APP) spans the breadth of biomedically-relevant subjects, from molecular genetics to cellular neuroscience to microanatomical imaging and beyond. Across our campus, there are specialized research facilities such as the Canadian Light Source, Canada's only synchrotron, and the Cameco MS Neuroscience Research Center.

The APP MSc and PhD programs enable life-long careers in basic or clinical realms of the biomedical sciences. More detailed information on specific APP research areas and program admission goals and requirements can be found at https://grad.usask.ca/programs/anatomy-physiology-pharmacology.php#Program


Information about admission requirements and deadlines, tuition, and more is listed on each program page (see above).
