M.A. Degree


Admission to the M.A. degree program requires an average of B+ or better in an Honours program in a Humanities or Social Sciences undergraduate program. Students with degrees in undergraduate programs outside the Humanities and Social Sciences where there is a component of relevant courses will also be considered.


In the M.A. program, studies take the form of course work plus a Major Research Paper. Each student is required to take a total of six half courses (core course, two other Globalization courses, and three electives) at the graduate level. During the fall term, each student will take the required core course plus two other half courses. During the winter term, each student will take an additional three half courses. It is required that each student prepare a proposal for his/her Major Research Paper and identify a potential supervisor and second reader during the winter term. The Major Research Paper course as well as the Major Research Paper are to be completed during the spring/summer session. Both of these requirements are graded either as a pass or as a fail.
