The University of Regina offers an exciting inter-disciplinary research-oriented graduate degree program in Aging Studies. Students with health professional degrees (e.g., nursing, physical therapy), or undergraduate degrees in disciplines such as kinesiology, psychology, social work, health studies, gerontology, sociology, and biology are encouraged to apply.
The program involves the collaboration of the Faculty of Arts, the Faculty of Kinesiology and Health Studies, and the Faculty of Social Work. Students can work towards an MA or an MSc degree depending on the nature of their thesis research.
