Admission for Registered Graduate Students
The Collaborative Specialization in Hazards, Risks, and Resilience is not a direct entry program. Graduate students may apply following admission to and registration in a HOME Program (department), where the student will have a lead research supervisor, complete a research thesis and earn a graduate degree in a specific discipline.

Program Entry Restriction
Masters students [1-year]: admission is restricted to students entering their first year of studies of a home department in the September term.

About Home Programs
The Collaborative Specialization in Hazards, Risks, and Resilience welcomes graduate students from the Departments of Civil & Environmental Engineering, Earth Sciences, Geography and Statistical & Actuarial Sciences.
Home Program Admissions
Admission to a home program (department) must occur before application to the Collaborative Specialization in Hazards, Risks, and Resilience can occur. Application deadlines and admissions processes are unique to each department and separate from the collaborative specialization processes. Prospective students must contact and consult directly with home programs to learn about the admissions process in the department that interests them and the method of identification of a home department lead research supervisor.
