Program Information
Faculty: Faculty of Science and Environmental Studies
Degree: Master
Field of Study: Geology/Earth Science, General
Description Studies leading to the degree of Master of Science in Geology normally emphasize the fields of Petrochemistry and Tectonophysics. Petrochemistry is deemed to include: Field and laboratory studies of ore deposits, igneous, metamorphic and lithified sedimentary rocks. Tectonophysics is deemed to include: Field and laboratory studies of structural geology, rock magnetism and basin analysis. The Department has specializations in the broad areas of petrochemistry and tectonophysics which have included projects in: petrology, mineralogy, geochemistry, structural geology, strain analysis, mapping, tectonics, sedimentation, economic geology, paleomagnetism and experimental rock deformation and strength testing. At least 30% of our MSc students proceed to PhD studies and most have published their research in peer-reviewed scientific journals. Fieldwork has taken place in all parts of Canada, including the high Arctic as well as overseas, e.g., in Cyprus.
