    Course Summary

    The Anatomical Sciences include the neurosciences (including Physiology, Anatomy, Molecular Biology, Developmental Biology and Cytology, as well as Histology, Embryology and Gross Anatomy. This multidisciplinary nature is part of what makes it such a fascinating field of study, but at the same time it makes the Anatomical Sciences challenging to teach. 

    Queen’s University’s MSc program in the Anatomical Sciences is of interest to those who have an interest in careers either as research scientists or as teachers of the anatomical sciences themselves. You’ll learn how to teach and to design professional curricula in the anatomical sciences. You’ll explore all three ‘pillars of competence’ in teaching: Content, Pedagogy and inquiry. 

    You will also learn a great many easily transferrable skills, including high level research methods, presentation and communication skills and computer literacy. These will make it possible for you to take up a management role in nearly any industry or economic sector. 

    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.

    Learning And Teaching

    Like all of the programs delivered by Queen’s University’s Department of Biomedical and Molecular Sciences, this program focuses on both practical and academic learning methods. It relies on everything from lecture based classroom instruction to an extensive practicum. It makes use of case-based teaching, relating what you’ve learned to real world events. In addition, you will have access to Academic Assistant positions in the Bachelor of Health Sciences program, both in person and online. 

    Career Possibilities

    An MSc is required for teaching most subjects at the BSc level, as well as specific experience in the subject taught. This program supplies both. Recent graduates of Queen’s University’s MSc in the Anatomical Sciences have become academics, administrators, scientists, research technicians and education co-ordinators as well as accepting private sector roles as consultants or in the pharmaceutical industry. Others have gone to work with the Ministry of the Environment and Agriculture or Health Canada.

    Entry & Credit

    Successful completion will result in an MSc degree. 

    To apply, you’ll need to have a 4 year BSc degree in Biology or the Health Sciences, or the international equivalent. Other qualifications may also be accepted. 

    All classes are taught in English, unless otherwise specified. International students will be required to show proficiency in English by scoring well on an approved test.
