Program Information

School:University of Regina - Faculty of Graduate Studies and Research
Field of Study:Physics, General
Description:The Department of Physics at the University of Regina offers graduate programs leading to the M.Sc. and Ph.D. 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 associate member of the TRIUMF subatomic physics laboratory in Vancouver, and has a close relationship with the Jefferson Laboratory in Newport News, Virginia, USA. We are also an institutional member of the international ATLAS collaboration at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN – the world’s largest particle physics laboratory.

Admission Requirements


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

    Admission to the Ph.D. program usually requires satisfactory completion of the M.Sc. degree. Exceptional M.Sc. candidates have the opportunity to transfer directly to a Ph.D. program in the second year of their full-time studies. 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

    Additional Admission Requirements:
    • Letter(s) of Reference
    • Resume/Curriculum Vitae
    • Statement of Research Interests
