First Step: What are your Research Interests?

The first step is to determine if there is a faculty member whose research interests are similar to your own. You can view the Departmental Research web page.

If there is a faculty member you would like to work with, we recommend that you first contact him/her directly to determine if she/he will be accepting any new M.Sc. or Ph.D. students in the term in which you wish to start. If you receive a positive response, you may complete an online graduate application. Please note that a positive response is not a guarantee of admission.

Graduate Applications can be found at the following web address: http://grad.ucalgary.ca/prospective/admissions
