Pre Master's Year
Admission requirements are a minimum 3-year undergraduate degree with a minimum GPA of 3.0 in the last 60 credit hours of undergraduate study. The pre-master's program is determined at the time of admission and may require up to 24 to 30 credit hours (CH) of upper level undergraduate course work. It is intended to bring students to the level of an honours degree (or equivalent) in the field of study and to ensure that academic deficiencies are cleared prior to entry to a master's program. The courses selected to complete the program must be approved by the Department's Graduate committee.
Admission and Requirements
Graduates of bachelor degree programs with a minimum grade point average (GPA) of 3.0 in the last two full years of university study will be considered for admission to a pre-Master’s program. These are the minimum requirements of the Faculty of Graduate Studies. Admission to a pre-Master’s program does not guarantee future admission to a Master’s program. As the Pre-Master’s program of study is intended to bring a student’s background up to the equivalent of the required 4-year degree, departments should assign to students, as part of their Pre-Master’s program of study, an appropriate number of applicable upper level (3000 or 4000) undergraduate courses. In exceptional circumstances and upon prior approval by the Graduate Dean, 7000 level courses may be considered for inclusion in the Pre-Master’s program of study for those students who hold a 4 year degree. Courses taken as part of the pre-Master’s program may not be transferred to a Master’s program at a later date.
All applicants to the pre-masters program must have a confirmed program supervisor in place at time of application. Please review the academic listing found at the following link and communicate directly with those whose research most closely matches that of your own interests. The department will not consider applications that have not identified a confirmed program supervisor.
