Graduate studies

Word from the Vice-Dean, Graduate Studies

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the Graduate Studies web page for the Faculty of Science. Our faculty is one of the strongest in Canada, with researchers who are leaders in their fields.  Our professors are committed to the idea that graduate education is a fundamental aspect of research, and thus our faculty provides many opportunities for students to collaborate with professors in research at the highest level.

On this webpage, you will find information about each of our departments, the courses they offer and opportunities for graduate study.  We have departments of Biology, Chemistry, Earth Sciences, Mathematics and Statistics, and Physics. Each has its own webpage, with links for its professors. The majority of our professors also have individual websites, describing their own research.  If you are considering doing graduate studies at uOttawa, I urge you to explore these pages; I have no doubt you will be impressed by the variety of research we offer.

In addition to the departments listed above, you will find information on various interdisciplinary programs our faculty offers, such as biostatistics, bionformatics and environmental toxicology programs. We understand that the best science can cross boundaries, and you will find within our faculty many interdisciplinary collaborations taking place.

We are also committed to financially supporting our graduate students, and you will find within these pages descriptions of the generous financial packages we offer.

Our office is here to help you with any information you may need, please feel free to contact us by phone at 613-562-5800 ext. 3145 or by e-mail at gradsci@uOttawa.ca.

Introduction

The Faculty of Science offers a wide variety of M.Sc. and Ph.D. programs in all of its five departments. Graduate studies may be completed in Biology, Chemistry, Earth Sciences, Mathematics & Statistics and Physics. We invite you to browse the appropriate department's website.

Please note that the departments are integrated with those of Carleton University to form a single program administered by the Ottawa-Carleton Institutes.

If your first language is not English or French, you must supply a TOEFL score or clear evidence that you have lived and practiced a profession in an English or French-speaking country for a considerable time.
