Admission Requirements

Prerequisites:*

These courses are intended as guidelines. Speak to your guidance counsellor to see what courses are offered at your school.

    Admission normally requires that the applicant has obtained a thesis-based Master's degree in the discipline. At the time the recommendation is made, the supervisor(s) must be identified, and in faculties lacking formal departments, the Dean of the faculty or designate must indicate approval. An applicant who is judged deficient in background training or in courses prerequisite to scholarly work in the particular subject(s) of study and research will not be admitted as a doctoral student. An applicant may be admitted as a Master's student and be required to undertake specific courses or activities towards establishing appropriate credentials, but any graduate study undertaken for this purpose cannot be counted as time spent toward formal requirements for the degree. Alternatively, an applicant may be accepted at the Master's level as a means of illustrating suitability to enter a doctoral program, and after the first year may request, through the academic unit, a transfer to a Ph.D. program An applicant who is judged deficient in background training or in courses prerequisite to scholarly work in the particular subject(s) of study and research will not be admitted as a doctoral student.
