Program Overview

Physics spans from zero to infinity in space, time and energy. It helps us to understand the mechanisms that make the universe work.  

Our graduate students participate in cutting-edge experiments and theoretical research and use facilities in Canada (TRIUMF), the United States (Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Laboratory, Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, Electron-Ion Collider in Brookhaven National Laboratory), Europe (CERN) and Japan (Super-Kamiokande). Our department is also an institutional member of both the Institute of Particle Physics and the Canadian Institute of Nuclear Physics.

Subatomic physics tackles the most fundamental scientific questions such as the beginning and evolution of the Universe; the nature of matter, energy and their interactions; the nature of space and time; and the fundamental laws governing the dynamics of the smallest building blocks of nature. Understanding nuclear processes has a deep impact on all nuclear technologies, such as nuclear power, isotopes for medical purposes, nuclear imaging and much more.

What Do Physicists Do?
Graduates with advanced degrees in physics have productive careers in academia, the energy sector, finance, analytics and others. Graduate studies in physics helps students become excellent problem solvers and analytical thinkers.

Areas of Study
The Department of Physics at the University of Regina offers graduate programs leading to the Master of Science and Doctorate degrees in Experimental and Theoretical Subatomic Physics, with special emphasis in:

  • Experimental Particle Physics: Weak Interactions and Neutrino Physics, Meson Spectroscopy, Rare Eta Decays, Hadronic Structure with EM probes
  • Experimental Nuclear Physics: Nuclear Imaging and Neutron Imaging, Nuclear Structure and Astrophysics of Rare Isotopes
