MA Application Information

Muhammad Ali and the Beatles

Students apply to the Tri-University Graduate Program in History on an application form from one of the three universities participating in the program. Because all applications are processed by a single Tri-University admissions committee, it does not matter which university’s application form you use. However, MA students should fill out the form for their preferred campus. In a link below you will also find a preference form. On this form, applicants to the Master’s program are invited to suggest a research supervisor. Fill in the preference form and include it in your application package. The admissions committee will use your application form together with your preference form when determining the department to which it will recommend your admission.

General Admission Requirements:

In order to be admitted to the master’s program, a student must meet the general admission requirements of Wilfrid Laurier University, the University of Waterloo or the University of Guelph. Generally speaking, a minimum admission average of B+ (77%) in the last two years of undergraduate study is required. Honours graduates in non-history programs and others may be admitted if evidence justifying admission is offered; however, a program of appropriate preparatory studies (qualifying year) may be required of such applicants.

Language Requirements:

Students are expected to be proficient in the language or languages needed in their areas of research.

Application Deadlines:

To be considered in the first round of admissions, applications must be received by 1 February. The admissions committee will, however, continue to review applications received after that date.
