M.A. Program

Admission to the program requires a minimum average of B+ in the last two years of undergraduate study (or equivalent last 10 full credits), exclusive of first-year courses. Honours graduates in a program other than History or general degree graduates may be admitted if evidence justifying admission is offered; however, a program of appropriate preparatory studies (a qualifying year) will be required of such applicants. In order to be admitted to the Master's program, a student must meet the general admission requirements of the university (see also the Laurier calendar descriptions for the M.A. program).

Applicants are required to submit two letters of reference, a statement of research interests, a cv, a sample of written work, and a program preference form (please see the Tri-U website for this form and further details on the application process). Students are expected to be proficient in the language or languages needed in their areas of research. Please note that acceptance into graduate school is a competitive process and that meeting these minimum requirements alone is not a guarantee of an offer of admission.

Our Masterís students study the world! For a list of recent Major Research Projects, please see here.
