There are many programs and specializations to explore. You can choose Co-operative or Regular; Honours Physics, Life Physics, Mathematical Physics, Materials and Nanosciences, or Chemical Physics; as well as the option to specialize in Applied Physics, Astrophysics, Biophysics or Medical Physics.
All of the major programs share a core of physics courses, and diversify based upon this strong foundation in science.
If Physics is not your major area of study, we also offer minors in Physics or Biophysics.
More information about the minors can be found in the undergraduate studies academic calendar.
Please consult our undergraduate student webpages for more information.
The Department of Physics & Astronomy offers thesis based graduate training at both the M.Sc. (Master of Science) and Ph.D. (Doctor of Philosophy) levels.
