Selecting Courses

Students should consult with their supervisor before selecting courses. Supervisors may require that students enrol in courses she/he teaches, or may have other suggestions for courses which may be appropriate for a student’s research interests.

Timing of Courses

There is no departmental requirement to take a particular number of courses during any given session. Normally coursework is spread over the fall and winter sessions and the number taken in a term may vary depending on what’s available and the student’s research interests. Generally, students take up to three courses per term but may take more or less. For master’s students, the expectation is that coursework is completed by end of April year 1 and for PhD students by end of year 1.

Courses Outside the Department

Each department has their own course enrollment procedures. Students should contact the Graduate Administrator in the department hosting the course for instructions.
