¿Qué aprenderé?

The School of the Environment at the University of Windsor offers both MSc and PhD degree programs, where we excel in providing innovative approaches to important problems.

Our research facilities contain state-of-the-art equipment, enabling our researchers and graduate students to stay on the cutting edge of earth and environmental research.

Degree Requirements and Structure

Students entering the PhD. program with an MSc degree will be required to:

Take a minimum of four, one-semester courses, including the doctoral research proposal and graduate seminar courses.

Additional courses may be required if the doctoral committee feels that a particular area of the student's background needs to be strengthened.

The required courses will be chosen in the context of the student's previous education to ensure a sufficient intellectual challenge, commensurate with the Ph.D. degree.

Students transferring into the Ph.D. program after having completed one year of the M.Sc. degree will be required to take a minimum of six courses in total, including the doctoral research proposal and graduate seminar courses.

Grading: The minimum passing grade in graduate courses is 70%. Any student whose performance is deemed unsatisfactory in course work or research will be required to withdraw.

Doctoral Committee: The doctoral committee shall comprise the advisor(s), two other faculty members from the Department of Earth Sciences and one faculty member from another department at the University of Windsor. Other committee members can be added where appropriate (e.g. from other universities or from industry).

Research Proposals: Doctoral candidates will be required to prepare research proposals that must be successfully defended in a public forum, prior to continuation in the program. Presentation of the research proposal will normally be at the end of the first calendar year after enrollment.

Dissertation: The student will be required to submit a dissertation that is a compilation of original research carried out by the student, under the supervision of the student's advisor(s) and the doctoral committee. The dissertation may be submitted in a traditional format or as a compilation of published papers and/or manuscripts, linked by introductory and conclusion chapters. In the latter case, the contribution of the student to any jointly authored papers must be clearly stated and justified.

Progress reports: The student will submit annual research progress reports to the doctoral committee. Continuation in the program is dependent on a satisfactory progress report. The Faculty of Graduate Studies also monitors student progress via an annual progress report submitted by the student and supervisor.
