This program may be done part time or full time, and in fact we encourage professionals in the field to consider doing this program as a part-time, professional development student.
Suitable for students not necessarily oriented towards research activity.
See the Faculty of Graduate Studies webpage for information for managing your program.
The student must choose one of three broad areas of specialization: Astrophysics, Physics, or Space Physics. The Radiation Oncology Physics specialization is not available as a course-based degree.
All graduate students must have a supervisor. For a course-based MSc program, this is quite straightforward, as the graduate chair acts as supervisor for all course-based MSc students.
Degree requirements must be completed within a maximum of six registration years if done on a part-time basis. Full-time students most often complete requirements within two registration years.
The applicant must make advanced credit requests as part of the admission process. Credit will not be given for course work taken as part of another completed degree/diploma or for courses taken to bring the grade point average to a required level of admission.
Credit for a maximum of two half-course equivalents may be given for courses taken at the 500-level.
