We seek to develop scholars whose research is relevant to all sectors in Saskatchewan, Canada, and in the global community.  The extensive array of graduate programming ranges from research-intensive thesis-based degrees to professional and course-based offerings.

Our holistic approach to graduate education through #URGradExperience offers student-centred experiences in an academically nurturing environment that supports both the research and career goals of our graduates. Like the University of Regina itself, we are deeply committed to innovation, inclusion, Indigenization, internationalism, and student success.
