The Department of Physics and Physical Oceanography at Memorial University of Newfoundland has a well established graduate studies program backed by a strong tradition of research. The Department has offered M.Sc. programs since the inception of graduate studies at Memorial in 1960 and its first Ph.D. program was created in 1969. In the present day, our students are supervised by faculty with international experience, connections and recognition. Our research programs receive generous funding from NSERC, the CFI and other organisations. Our labs and computer facilities are equipped to offer students world-class research opportunities.
More than 170 graduate degrees have been awarded for work supervised in this department since 1962. A list of these degrees can be found here.
The Department fosters a friendly and cooperative, international atmosphere. There are approximately forty-five students currently enrolled in our graduate programs, including students from Newfoundland and other parts of Canada, Bangladesh, China, Columbia, Germany, India, Iran, Japan, Jordan, Nigeria, Pakistan, Palestine, Saudi Arabia, Uganda, Venezuela, and Yemen. The Department values diversity and is committed to providing an equitable and inclusive environment for all graduate students, regardless of sex, race, sexual orientation, or gender identification.
