The Department of Physics offers graduate programs leading to the
Master of Science and
Doctor of Philosophydegrees. The department carries out research in experimental and theoretical physics in the following fields: atmospheric physics, geophysics, quantum optics, condensed matter physics, subatomic physics and astrophysics, and biophysics. The department has close ties with the Canadian Institute for Theoretical Astrophysics (CITA). This association enables our students to work and consult with leading theorists who are appointed to, or who are visiting, CITA.
Students are admitted under the General Regulations of the School of Graduate Studies. The department provides financial support for one year of the MSc and four years of the PhD program (five years for direct-entry PhD).
