The Department of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Regina has been offering
graduate degrees since 1969. (See the List of Past Graduates. )
The current areas of research expertise of our Department's Faculty include:
Graduate students may concentrate on any of these areas, and the Department's graduate programs lead to the M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees. A graduate student in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Regina can count on a low student-to-professor ratio and on significant faculty involvement in his or her program. Because the University of Regina is a member of the Pacific Institute for Research in the Mathematical Sciences (PIMS), the Department's graduate students enjoy opportunities to attend special short courses, summer schools, and/or workshops offered by PIMS.
The first thing you should do is fill out and submit the online questionnaire form.
Once this form is submitted a copy will be sent to the department and to you. Afterwards, you will be contacted by a member of the Graduate Admissions committee (GAC). All applicants should be aware that acceptance into a program leading to an M.Sc. or Ph.D. degree is usually contingent on the availability of a faculty member to supervise the desired research area of the applicant.
If the GAC responds positively, you will be asked to complete the Faculty of Graduate Studies and Research (FGSR) Online Application Form by the next application deadline - January 31 or August 31.
Only a complete application is forwarded to our Department by FGSR, so it is important that the applicant ensure all instructions are followed carefully and that all components of the application arrive in good order. Prospective applicants may always contact the department via the email address: at any time during the admission process should questions or concerns arise.
Persons seeking admission into either an MSc. or Ph.D. program in Mathematics or Statistics to commence
in the next Fall semester, which begins in September, should have their completed application submitted
by January 31 of the same calendar year.
Persons seeking admission for the next Winter semester, which begins in January, should have their completed application submitted by August 31 of the previous calendar year.
How important is it to meet the application deadline?
You need to meet the application deadline in order to ensure that your application will be considered for financial support. The University offers a limited number of graduate scholarships and teaching assistantships at varying funding levels that aid its students financially so that they may be able to devote more of their time to their studies. Application for financial support is concurrent with the formal application to the program, and a separate application form is not required. Details on the exact nature of your funding, at least for the first year, will be including with your official acceptance offer letter.
If you miss the deadlines but still wish to be considered for admission, then the Department's Graduate Admissions Committee will review your application, but there may be no guarantee of funding associated with your possible acceptance into a graduate program.
Questions about our graduate program and/or admission process should be addressed by email to . Prospective applicants are asked to communicate directly with us at this address before beginning the formal admission process.
