Graduate Studies General Regulations Research


Research
In most graduate degree programs students must carry out research for their thesis or project as directed by the appointed supervisor. For a master's program, the research must be of high scholarly standard; for a doctoral program, it must be original and should further existing knowledge of the subject.
 
Selection of the subjects upon which the research and thesis will be based is made by the student in consultation with his/her supervisor or committee.
Most research should be done within the facilities of the Department/Program and Queen's University, but in circumstances where these are inadequate or where the work must be done in the field, students may apply through the Department/Program to the School of Graduate Studies for permission to do their research outside the university. This will be granted only if the School of Graduate Studies has assurance, in writing, from the student's supervisor/committee that:
   a. the student will be doing the research personally, as directed by the supervisor, and
   b. the supervisor/committee will have access to and knowledge of the field operation, outside laboratory, or library to direct the student.
 
This change of research venue is requested via the Full Time Off Campus regulation and procedures.
