About

The MA program in the Department of Sociology is a two-year graduate program designed to provide students an intellectually stimulating and vibrant academic environment to enhance their “sociological thinking” through graduate-level coursework and thesis-based research. Each year, we seek to admit a small number of interested, enthusiastic, and qualified students.

Since our cohorts are small, students in our program benefit from close mentorship opportunities with supportive and interested faculty. Students also benefit from flexibility in course offerings and personal attention in designing a program aligned with their individual research interests. Typically, students will require a bachelor’s degree in Sociology to be admitted into the program, but a bachelor’s degree from other cognate disciplines, combined with a planned program of research grounded in sociological inquiry, will also be considered. Applicants are required to contact a potential supervisor prior to applying to the program to ensure suitability of their proposed research and to confirm a willingness on the part of the faculty member to act as their supervisor....

About

Students may pursue a Masters degree in Religious Studies in the following areas:

Christianity, Islam, Judaism, Hinduism, Buddhism, or East Asian Religions, provided they closely align with the expertise of our departmental members. Our members might also supervise MAs in other areas aligned with their ongoing research projects. Please consult the profiles of the individual professors, or contact them directly for such distinctive areas of research. For instance, some faculty conduct research on Buddhism in the West, mysticism, near-death experiences, and modern nondual spirituality.

Typically, MA students are expected to have or obtain the equivalent of one year of study in a classical language related to their research area. The University of Lethbridge offers courses in Latin and Japanese, and occasionally in Greek and Hebrew. However, Chinese, Sanskrit, Arabic, and other such languages may have to be studied at other institutions.... [-]

Graduate students interested in Political Science should apply to do an MA in Political Science and NOT to the Cultural, Social and Political Thought program as the Department does not participate in the CSPT Program.

Besides the coursework, students must complete a thesis, following the requirements of the School of Graduate Studies.... [-]
