The general regulations and requirements of Trent University's School of Graduate Studies apply to the three BEMA Graduate Program streams (M.Sc., M.BEMA & G.Dip). To be considered for admission, applicants will normally have completed a B.Sc. Honours degree (a 4-year undergraduate bachelor's degree from a recognized university), with a minimum average of B+ (77%) in the work of the last four semesters or the last two undergraduate years (last ten full course credits). The BEMA program will consider Bachelor's degrees in environmental studies, if applicants have taken statistics and other science courses.
For the M.Sc. program, please see the Faculty & Research page and contact supervisors to inquire about upcoming opportunities.
Trent University has three semester terms per academic year:
Fall Term - September 1 to December 31
Winter Term - January 1 to April 30

Graduate students are expected to be registered for all three semesters for the academic year, and will be charged tuition fees per term. Fees and funding information are available through the School of Graduate Studies. Students in the BEMA graduate program are admitted to the program once a year for studies beginning the following September.
