Admission Requirements

You are reading the 2022/23 Academic Calendar. The 2021/22 version remains in effect until 31 August 2022 and is available here

Applicants to the M.Sc. in Earth and Environmental Sciences must have a four-year (or equivalent) undergraduate degree in Earth or Environmental Science or a cognate discipline. Admission to the Ph.D. program will normally require an M.Sc. in one of these disciplines. In special circumstances, students who demonstrate exceptional research ability may apply directly to the Ph.D. program upon completion of a B.Sc. Honours. Students are also required to meet the minimum standard for admission to graduate studies at the UBC Okanagan campus.

Application forms for the Earth and Environmental Sciences graduate program can be accessed through College of Graduate Studies. Prior to completing forms, students need to:

  • identify and contact a prospective supervisor.
  • discuss a possible program of courses and research with the supervisor; and
  • work with the proposed supervisor to create an advisory committee normally consisting of at least two other members. Committee members may be in other academic units within the UBC Okanagan campus, research scientists at other academic institutions, or scientists in industry or government.
