McMaster University’s Faculty of Science works to create global impact by advancing scientific discovery and knowledge, and promoting greater understanding. Our innovative, interdisciplinary approach generates new
methods and insights, groundbreaking results and lasting change.
Experience an education that represents far more than a collection of facts, concepts and answers. Our award-winning professors and researchers value innovative teaching, a lifelong passion for learning, and working at the frontiers of knowledge.
The Faculty of Science offers 32 graduate degrees across 7 Departments and Schools; we also offer 5 interdisciplinary programs and specializations. Our diverse graduate programs and cutting-edge research makes the Faculty an excellent place to pursue a degree of your choice.
Committed to training the next generation of researchers, we involve students in the research process at the earliest stages of their university experience. Our students have unparalleled opportunities to conduct research, work with external partners, and broaden their understanding of science and its impact.
The Faculty of Science hosts a number of facilities and programs for the community to better understand the practice of science, the results that research uncovers, and the world around us.
