Program Information
Faculty: Department of Earth Sciences
Degree: Doctorate
Field of Study: Geology/Earth Science, General
Description Established in 1982, the Ottawa-Carleton Geoscience Centre, a joint initiative of Carleton University and the University of Ottawa, offers programs leading to the degrees of M.Sc. and Ph.D. in Earth Sciences. The Centre houses modern instrumental facilities open to students at both campuses, and research activity includes most areas of the Earth Sciences. The campuses are fifteen minutes apart by complimentary inter-university transport and within a short distance of most federal facilities. The size of the Centre's research faculty and its location in the nation's capital offer unique opportunities for collaborative research over a broad range of disciplines. Of particular note is the Centre's close collaboration with the Geological Survey of Canada and the Canadian Museum of Nature. Graduate students are enrolled in the university where their faculty supervisor holds an appointment but can take courses or use facilities at both universities. Students draw from a program of courses in English or French and may pursue their research in either language.
