Applying for Admission

Admission Requirements

Normally, enrolment in the program will be open to students who have graduated with an honours degree or its equivalent in communication studies or a cognate discipline from an approved university, and who have maintained at least an average of B+ in their undergraduate major program of study and a B+ overall for the last two years of study.

Applications must be accompanied by official transcripts and be supported by at least two letters of recommendation from faculty members who are qualified to assess the applicant’s potential for graduate training in the communication studies program. Applications are reviewed by the Graduate Admissions Committee, which considers all prior university grades, a statement of research interests, a writing sample, and letters of reference.

English Proficiency Requirement (international applicants)

Proficiency in English usage, both written and oral, is essential to pursue graduate studies at Laurier. Applicants whose language of instruction during the undergraduate degree was other than English must furnish evidence of superior proficiency in English, prior to admission.

Part-time Studies

The MA in communication studies will not normally be offered on a part-time basis.
