Graduate Studies

Creative Minds

In Graduate Studies, students contribute to historical research by creating their own research project with the support of their supervisor. Building on solid methodologies, fruitful approaches, and inspiring concepts, masters and doctoral students uncover unknown aspects of past societies and help reveal their relevance in today’s world. Associated with professors within our research clusters, graduate students disseminate their findings to many publics, here and abroad, and prepare themselves for diverse career opportunities.

Programs

Master's

There are many possible combinations for our masters programs in history, depending on students’ interests, career plans, research orientations, and length of study. There are two basic options, the MA with thesis, or the MA with Research Paper. Each can be combined with the CO-OP option. We also offer a collaborative Masters in Medieval and Renaissance Studies, as well as in Women’s Studies. Follow the links below to find details on the programs. Feel free to contact professors, or the Chair of the Graduate Committee if you have any questions.


PH.D

Our PhD program has a simple structure that can be tailored to our students’ individual needs. In their first year, doctoral students engage in intensive reading fields that lead them to work closely with three professors as they prepare for the comprehensive examination. At the beginning of the second year, a common seminar serves as a springboard to the student’s research project, professional life, and dissertation writing. A collaborative specialization in Canadian Studies can be added to this structure, or a co-tutelle with another institution. Follow the links below to find details on the programs. Feel free to contact professors, or the Chair of the Graduate Committee if you have any questions.
