Everything Science 2021

Memorial is an awesome place to become a scientist!

The Faculty of Science consists of nine departments across a wide range of disciplines and with specializations available. Our combination of course, lab and field work and research opportunities will ensure our students are well prepared for whatever path they choose. 

Get started with Everything Science 2021 - our introduction to studying science at Memorial. Our events will acquaint you with the executive team in the Dean of Science Office, our departments, academic advisors, research opportunities and our student societies.

Join us online and in person from Aug. 30 - Sept. 5 to discover exciting opportunities to pursue science and find out how Everything is Science at Memorial University. 

Some of our activities will be taking place virtually via Webex. Each event will be recorded and available later on our YouTube channel for future viewing.

Also, be sure to check out our Brightspace page. There you will find information about each of our departments and their programs, as well as a frequently asked questions section.
