The outlines below are drafts that were posted early to provide as much information to students as possible in advance of registration and the final outlines will be provided at the start of each course.

Graduate Courses

Below are the expected course offerings for 2020-2021. Current course outlines may change through the term; changes will be posted here as they arrive in the Department Office. If you have questions or require clarification on a specific matter, please contact either the instructor listed next to the course or the Graduate Office, ext 23582.

If a TBA is listed, the course and instructor information will be finalized in the near future. Some cancellations and changes may occur. Please speak with your supervisor and/or the Associate Chair, Grad Studies if there are no offerings that suit your individual program plan as special arrangments may be possible on a case-by-case basis.

Where current outlines are not yet available*, a previous year's outline is included as an example of the course structure and workload expectations.
