    Course Summary

    Mount Allison University offers many MSC programs, but they are all closely related. At the Mater’s level almost any program becomes highly interdisciplinary, and You are likely to interact with all of the school’s Sciences faculty at one time or another.

    You could pursue a range of MScs, in Biology, Chemistry or Biochemistry, for example.

    • Biology is the study of life and life processes. It looks at the structure, behaviour, origin and evolution of life.
    • Biochemistry is a combination of the core discipline of chemistry – the study of matter and how it can combine into different substances – and its application to life and life processes.
    • Chemistry makes up a critical part of the world around us. It looks at the very foundations of materials science, medicine, agriculture and molecular biology.

    In addition, you could begin a graduate program in many other scientific disciplines, with special approval and the support of a member of academic staff.

    If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.
