MSc (Coursework Program) in Applied Immunology

The purpose of the MSc in the field of Applied Immunology is to provide advanced training in designing, implementing and evaluating Immunological techniques that measure immune responses. To qualify for the degree, each candidate must complete specified course work and a Major Research Project. The Major Research Project, which will be performed in a host laboratory, will comprise research that designs and validates a novel technical approach that will be summarized in a proposal document, a report document and an oral presentation.

The duration of the MSc degree in Applied Immunology will be 6 sessions (F/W/S/F/W/S) or 24 months, although some students may be eligible for advanced standing and may complete the MSc in Applied Immunology in 4 sessions (S/F/W/S).  Please visit our graduate admissions page here for details on advanced standing elegibility.

** Please note, we unfortunately cannot accept international students into the MSc in Applied Immunology graduate program at this time.  International students are encouraged to apply to our Fundamental Immunology (Thesis-based) graduate program. 

Additionally, students doing an MSc in Applied Immunology are not eligible for a stipend.
