Find a Program & Supervisor

Finding a Supervisor

A supervisor is a faculty member who mentors a graduate student in their research.  Many research-based graduate programs expect students to identify a prospective supervisor prior to applying for admission. It is best to check with the graduate program you will be applying to, to find out if this is expected. If so, you will need to identify a potential supervisor in your desired field of research.

Check the graduate degree program websites as listed below. Most programs provide lists of faculty members/potential supervisors and their research interests on their website. Please contact the program directly for academic advising and program-related questions. The program’s contact information is on the program’s website.
