Master of Science in Physics
The Department of Physics at the University of Regina offers graduate programs leading to the MSc and PhD degrees in Experimental and Theoretical Subatomic Physics, with special emphasis in:
- High Energy Physics
- Weak Interactions and Neutrino Physics
- Hadronic QCD Physics
Faculty members and graduate students pursue their research locally, and at locations elsewhere in Canada, the United States, Europe and Japan. Graduate instruction is provided in an encouraging and productive environment. The department is an full member of the TRIUMF subatomic physics laboratory in Vancouver, and has a close relationship with the Jefferson Laboratory in Newport News, Virginia, USA. Our department is also an institutional member of both the institute of Particle Physics and the Canadian Institute for Nuclear Physics.
- Applicants must have an overall grade point average of 75%.
- WES ICAP course-by-course evaluation report is required.
- A BSc Honours degree (or equivalent) in physics or engineering physics is required for admission to the MSc program. A minimum average of 75% in all physics and mathematics courses, and an overall average of 70%, is required. Applicants not meeting this standard will be considered for probationary acceptance only. In addition to the grades and recommendation letters, the overlap of the applicant's research interests with those of the department is also taken into account in the acceptance decision. International applicants are encouraged to write the GRE physics subject exam in addition to an English Proficiency exam.
- Tuition fee for 15 credit is given
