The Department of Physics and Physical Oceanography at Memorial University of Newfoundland has a well-established graduate studies program backed by a strong tradition of research. 


Key facts

The Department has offered MSc programs since the inception of graduate studies at Memorial in 1960 and its first PhD program was created in 1969. We offer a master degree in Physics and Physical Oceanography at the Memorial University of Newfoundland. 

In the present day, our students are supervised by faculty with international experience, connections, and recognition. 

Our research programs receive generous funding from NSERC, the CFI, and other organisations. Our labs and computer facilities are equipped to offer students world-class research opportunities.

Research opportunities in physical oceanography include theoretical, computational, experimental and observational studies of planetary fluid dynamics, glacial ice sheet dynamics, acoustic observation methods, instrument development, and global climate modeling. 

Research in experimental and theoretical/computational condensed matter physics falls into three broad categories: hard condensed matter, involving solids with high melting points, ultra-low temperatures, and quantum mechanical effects; soft condensed matter, involving liquids, colloids and polymers, proteins, lipids, viruses and cells; and applied physics, involving sensors and photonics.
