The Department of Human Genetics offers both M.Sc. and Ph.D. thesis programs. Students entering the graduate program following a bachelor's degree may wish to be considered for either degree. A common course, however, is to enroll in the M.Sc. program and transfer to the Ph.D. program providing this option meets the requirements of the student, the supervisor and the graduate training committee of the Department of Human Genetics. Both the M.Sc. and the Ph.D. programs are focused on research training and both culminate in the submission of a thesis. Both programs carry course requirements as well as the expectation that students will participate in research seminars and journal clubs.
The Department of Human Genetics also offers a clinical training MSc degree in Genetic Counselling (Non-Thesis).
