MSc Program Description & Options

MSc Program

There are two choices available to MSc students: the thesis options (12 or 6 credit thesis) and the essay option (3 credit essay).  The choice between the two options depends on what the student hopes to achieve with the MSc degree, and whether the student wants to pursue a PhD degree. Each choice has its own advantages.

PhD Supervisory Committee

Every incoming graduate student is assigned a faculty member as his/her advisor. These assignments are made keeping in mind the research interests of the student and the workload of the faculty member. In the case of entering PhD students, the advisor is a member of the “offer sponsorship team,” which consists of one to three faculty. It is the student’s responsibility to formalize a supervisory relationship with a faculty member in his or her area of interest within one term.

PhD Program Requirements

To complete the PhD program, a student must successfully complete a Research Proficiency Evaluation (RPE), be admitted to candidacy, complete the PhD thesis, and defend it according to the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies policies (www.grad.ubc.ca/current-students/graduation). To be admitted to candidacy, the student must complete the Comprehensive Course Requirement and defend the Thesis Proposal Exam.

PhD Program

All doctoral students must remain continuously registered until the degree is completed except for periods of time when the student is away on an official leave of absence. Failure to register for two consecutive terms may result in the student being required to withdraw.
