Master's in Sociology

The master’s program in sociology is as well-known in academia as in the labour market. At the crossroads of Canadian, French, American and global traditions, and available in both official languages, it offers a wide range of academic specialization and employment possibilities. Many graduates of the program find work in the public sector working on issues that are central to sociology, such as immigration, ethnicity, gender, social movements, identity, aging and the social dynamics of health. The MA program also gives students the opportunity to pursue doctoral studies in sociology as well as in other disciplines, at the University of Ottawa or elsewhere around the world. 

Deadline: March 1

Based on availability in the program, strong applications will continue to be examined and admission scholarships are available for all eligible candidates.

Master's in Anthropology

Understand the world better.

People and Landscape

In ever-changing social and environmental conditions, anthropology offers new critical perspectives on the world by highlighting how local and global issues are connected. The discipline’s field research method, ethnography, makes it possible to document in real time a host of complex phenomena pertaining to diverse topics such as medicine, the environment, minorities, media, indigenousness and more. Anthropology students live “in the moment” to observe and understand the contemporary issues that emerge during field research taking place anywhere in the world.

Deadline: March 1

Based on availability in the program, strong applications will continue to be examined and admission scholarships will be available for all eligible candidates.

PhD in Sociology

Graduates of the doctoral program in sociology can pursue an academic career or research in a range of fields. The doctoral program at the University of Ottawa offers a unique education, with courses in French and English, professors from diverse backgrounds working on a wide range of topics in the discipline, and an ideal location for studying major contemporary social transformations. Our students conduct research around the world; participate in activities offered by campus research centres and benefit from the many resources available to them, such as teaching and research assistantships, spacious work areas and research funding.

Deadline: March 1

Based on availability in the program, strong applications will continue to be examined and admission scholarships are available for all eligible candidates.

PhD in Anthropology

The doctoral program in Anthropology at the University of Ottawa features innovative training that brings together the existing strengths of anthropology (field work, ethnography, international experience, and multidisciplinarity) with a contemporary theoretical approach to the study of anthropology. Moreover, the doctoral program features a new curriculum that includes a professional development seminar and a comprehensive exercise that favours the integration of doctoral candidates into the labour market.

In a rapidly evolving social and environmental context, anthropology brings new critical perspectives to the problems and challenges of the contemporary world by highlighting the links between local problems and global issues. The method of inquiry grounded in field work, ethnography, allows the researcher to document in real time the complexity of phenomena all the while situating various themes, including medicine, the environment, new media, the city, politics, the economy and Indigeneity in diverse social and cultural contexts.

The School of Sociological and Anthropological Studies offers the doctoral program (Ph.D.) in Anthropology. This program is offered full time in French and in English. That being said, the three required doctoral seminars are offered only in French.

In accordance with University policy, assignments, exams, major research papers and theses can be written in French or in English.

Deadline: March 1

Based on availability in the program, strong applications will continue to be examined and admission scholarships are available for all eligible candidates.
