Graduate Studies

The continued expansion and diversity of our Graduate Studies programming is linked to Brock's growing reputation as a research-intensive university of international calibre.

Graduate Studies will deepen our research culture by developing:

  • Dynamic new master’s and doctoral programs
  • Unique interdisciplinary and cross-disciplinary programs
  • New collaborative programs within the University and with external partners
  • And increased opportunities for graduate students in areas of leadership skill development, innovation and community outreach.

To pursue such priorities, specific measures being taken by the University include:

  • Expanding graduate programming commensurate with our areas of research strengths, particularly at the PhD level
  • Increasing the number of graduate-level applied programs in response to University research strengths and demonstrated social need
  • Raising the presence of graduate students to 10 per cent of the full-time student population by 2014
  • Increasing endowments to support entrance fellowships and “top-up” scholarships, to attract and retain excellent graduate students 
  • Extending minimum funding at competitive levels to full-time graduate students in all Faculties
  • And growing professional development opportunities for graduate students through professional training, internships and related community engagement activities.
