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

In the M.A. program, each student is required to take a total of six graduate half courses (or equivalent): two core courses, two other Globalization courses, at least one of which should be offered by IGHC, and two electives and write a Major Research Paper (MRP, GLOBALST 708 ). During the fall term, each student will take the first required core course (GLOBALST 710 ) plus two other half courses. During the winter term, each student will take the second core course (GLOBALST 709 ) and an additional two half courses. Each student is required to 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 will be completed during the spring/summer session and will be graded as a pass or fail.
