  • power electronics and software engineering
  • global development and cultural studies
  • bioethics
  • nationalism and democracy
  • particle astrophysics
  • mental health
  • natural resources and infrastructure
  • basic and clinical biomedical sciences
  • healthy environments and sustainable energy systems
  • social issues such as surveillance, poverty and bullying

Queen’s University is a community, 170 years of tradition, academic and research excellence, and a beautiful waterfront campus made up of limestone buildings and modern facilities. But more than anything Queen’s is people. We are researchers, scholars, artists, professors and students with an ambitious spirit who want to develop ideas that can make a difference in the world.
