O que eu aprenderei?

Our department is interdisciplinary, comparative, and critically engaged. Our graduate programs are small, collegial and selective. We pride ourselves on the faculty support we offer our graduate students. Our MA students are highly competitive candidates for places in PhD programs across Canada and internationally. Many have been awarded major fellowships in support of their doctoral studies. Others have gone on to careers in policy, law, the non-profit sector, and education.

Program Structure:

The Sociology and Social Anthropology programs each involve five credits, including classwork and a thesis. A Master's degree may be pursued on a 12-month full-time basis, or on a part-time basis (the degree requirements for each being the same).

Full-time students who set themselves the goal of finishing the MA in 12 months may do so, especially if they elect to do a thesis that does not require fieldwork/data gathering and ethics approval (for example, an analysis of existing texts or datasets in the public domain). Students who choose to do fieldwork or gather original data generally take between 18 and 24 months to finish the MA.

All students are expected to remain in regular contact with their committees, including during the summer months.

Prior to arrival, each student shall have been assigned a temporary advisor on the basis of the student's “Statement of Interest” (submitted as part of the application process). This advisor shall help the student to select his/her courses and Area Program Committee, including its Chair. The Area Program Committee oversees the student's Area Essays Examination.


MA students complete their course requirements, consisting of five course credits, from September to April. For Social Anthropology students, the five credits are obtained by the successful completion of:

a) a thesis (2 credits) [SOSA 9001]

b) an Area Essay Examination (1 credit) [SOSA 5300.06]

c) the Graduate Seminar (1 credit) [SOSA 5200.06]

d) one elective half-credit graduate class (½ credit)

e) "Contemporary Perspectives in Ethnography" (SOSA 5003.03) [½ credit] (However, students who have taken SOSA 4003.03 normally shall not take SOSA 5003.03 and instead shall select an additional half-credit elective.)
