The Concurrent Education program at our Brantford Campus is offered in partnership with Laurier Brantford. Graduates receive an Honours Bachelor of Arts in Society, Culture & Environment from Laurier Brantford and a Bachelor of Education from Nipissing.
The normal minimum admission requirement is a master’s degree or equivalent, as recognized by Nipissing University in an appropriate discipline, with a minimum A- standing. Since completion of a dissertation is a required part of the PhD program, preference will be given to applicants whose master’s degree included an independent research component such as a thesis or major research paper.
Applicants whose master’s work did not include a thesis or major research paper may, at the time of application, submit another piece of original research for consideration. If at the time of application, an applicant cannot provide evidence of having conducted original research at an acceptable level, he or she may be required to complete a qualifying research paper (QRP) prior to acceptance.
All applicants are required to provide an up-to-date curriculum vitae. All applicants are required to write a statement of approximately 1000 words explaining the value of undertaking a doctoral degree for their specific circumstances, their research interests, and their desired area of thesis research.
All applicants are required to provide three academic and professional letters of recommendation from professors or appropriate professionals who can speak to their level of preparation and readiness for graduate studies at the doctoral level. At least two of the letters of reference must be from those qualified to address the academic ability and competence of the applicant. Letters of reference cannot be from anyone who is personally related to the applicant, and ideally will come from more than one institution.
Since this program will be conducted in the English language, evidence of the applicant’s ability to complete scholarly work independently in English will be required. Applicants may also be asked to submit supplemental information as appropriate.
It is understood that admission to the PhD program is limited and, therefore, applicants who meet or exceed the minimum admission requirements are not guaranteed admission.
