The Departmental requirements for the M.A.Sc. degree program are a minimum of two full graduate courses (or four half-courses), plus research and thesis. At most, one of these four graduate level half courses can be jointly offered (double-numbered) with an undergraduate course provided that a) the course is approved by the student's supervisor and b) the student has not received credit for a similar course in their Bachelor's program. At least one full course (or two half-courses) must be from among those offered by the Department of Physics, Engineering Physics and Astronomy. At most, one full course (two half-courses) may be taken from a department other than Physics, Engineering Physics and Astronomy subject to the approval of the Department of Physics, Engineering Physics and Astronomy.
