Admissions

Candidates who are holders of a master’s degree in an environmentally related discipline and have achieved a minimum grade point average (GPA) or equivalent of 3.33/4.33 (B+) in the master’s program may submit an application to the Yeates School of Graduate Studies Admissions. Master’s degree holders in other academic disciplines will be considered on an individual basis.

Three letters of recommendation are required from academic referees who can judge the candidate's potential to engage in research at the doctoral level. Candidates are also required to demonstrate research potential in the way of a master's thesis or research project indicated in the academic transcript or in a publication that has appeared in a refereed journal or conference proceeding.

Graduates with an honours degree from a recognized university in any of the environmentally related disciplines and that have achieved a minimum grade point average (GPA) or equivalent of 3.00/4.33 (B) in the last two years of the undergraduate four-year degree may submit an application to the Yeates School of Graduate Studies Admissions, opens in new window. Holders of non-environmentally related degrees will be considered on an individual basis.

MASc applicants are required to have at least one one-term statistics degree credit in their undergraduate degree program.  A one-term course normally is four months' long and has a total of 36 to 40 hours of classes in a term. Applicants who do not have any statistics course credit may submit a master’s program application provided the minimum academic requirements to apply stated above are met. Candidates who are offered admission without the statistics degree credit will be required to complete this requirement preferably prior to the first term of study in the master’s program or during the first year of study after admission.  Any degree credit statistics course completed at the Continuing Education Division of Ryerson University, opens in new window (C.E.) or at any Canadian universities is acceptable.  Graduate students enrol in C.E. courses will be responsible for paying the C.E. course fee in addition to the graduate program fees.

Two letters of academic recommendation are required for each master’s full- and part-time application. Master's part-time applicants who are working in an environmentally related field and that are unable to provide two academic references may submit a professional letter to replace one of the two academic references.  At least one academic reference must be provided.
