Program Information
Faculty: Graduate Programs
Degree: Master
Field of Study: Physics, General
Description The objective of the collaborative program is to provide students with the knowledge and skills needed to evaluate the challenges confronting decision-making at the interface of science and policy. Students will have an opportunity to explore how evidence is used in decision-making, how current policies shape the scientific enterprise, and how emerging technologies interact with society. The Ottawa-Carleton Institute for Physics is one of the participating units in the collaborative program in Science, Society and Policy (master’s level only). Research facilities are shared between the two campuses. Students have access to the professors, courses and facilities at both universities; however, they must register at the “home university” of the thesis supervisor. Members of the Institute are engaged in research in different fields of Physics: condensed matter; high energy and biological physics; medical physics; photonics. Additional information is posted in the departmental website.
