The M.Sc. in Health and Radiation Physics is relatively course intensive and is designed to provide the education, training and professional development required for a career in Health Physics.
This program may be pursued part time. Applicants who are interested in this option should contact the program administration at an early stage of their application.
Normal admission requirements are a B.Sc. honours degree, at least B+ standing (or equivalent) in Physics, Biophysics, Engineering Physics, or Chemistry, or some course of study approved by the Radiation Sciences Graduate Program.
Students are expected to have knowledge in Radiation Biology and in Radiation & Radioisotope Methodology. If a student lacks this knowledge, she/he will be directed by the program to pursue appropriate additional learning opportunities.
Pass a final comprehensive examination.
Complete and defend a research report based on a project approved by the Program.
A student with a strong background in Health and Radiation Physics may be permitted to replace one or more of the core courses with relevant courses approved by the Department. A student may not take more than one 600-level full graduate course to satisfy the minimum course requirements.
