Graduate Student Forms and Resources

Department Resources

Department of Environment and Geography Supplemental Regulations
The “Supp Regs” contain the Faculty of Graduate Studies’ Academic Guide along with the Department’s supplemental regulations. All the formal rules that govern the Masters and Doctoral programs are found here.

Milestone Checklists:   Master's Checklist   Ph.D. Checklist
Distilled down from the Supp Regs, these checklists contain the essentials of what you need to graduate.

Graduate Student Registration Approval Form
Current students must obtain their advisor’s approval for their coursework and return to the Graduate Program Coordinator before registering for Fall. (Fall and Winter can be noted on the same form.)

Graduate Seminar Guidelines
All students must give a seminar presentation (Ph.D. students give two) at one of the twice-a-year departmental seminars.

University Resources

Library Resources
Contact our librarian, Grace Romund, and access specialized library resources in Environment & Geography fields.

  • OrcID – A digital identifier to use for publishing and other professional activities.

Academic Learning Centre
The ALC provides hour or half-hour long appointments with a writing specialist. Sign up for appointments in Tier, and choose one of the specialists recommended for graduate students (Jim and Miriam if available). 

Graduate Teaching Program
The Centre for the Advancement of Teaching and Learning provides a series of workshops designed for graduate students to learn skills and techniques for teaching. Completing the steps gains you an accreditation through SEDA.

The Faculty of Graduate Studies partners with the Libraries, Academic Learning Center, Student Counselling Centre, and other facilities on campus to offer a range of workshops. Highly recommended are:

  • Working with your advisor
  • How to write a Literature Review
  • Grant writing (different workshops for NSERC and SSHRC)

The University of Manitoba Graduate Students’ Association is the student-governed association representing graduate students at the University of Manitoba, which functions on all of its affiliate campuses.

Health and Dental plan
Full-time graduate students are automatically members of the UMSU Health and Dental Plan. Fees are assessed in the Fall term, or upon registration into a graduate program.
