Join us at Laurier

Becoming a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.


Application Submission and Assessment

The first round of applications is considered in early January. Thereafter, applications will continue to be considered until the program is full. If applying after the first phase of applications is considered in early January, consult the graduate coordinator directly to enquire about further openings in the program. We have had a significant amount of interest in our program during the past two years, so we strongly encourage prospective students to apply prior to the deadline.

Visit our Graduate Admissions Toolkit for more information about applying.

Application Checklist

After you have submitted your OUAC application, paid the non-refundable application fee, and Laurier has received your application, you'll receive an email from fgps@wlu.ca advising you to upload the additional required documentation to Laurier’s Online Viewing system.

An application for admission to our MA program in Religion, Culture, and Global Justice must include:

  • The Application Summary, which is generated after you complete your OUAC application (log back in to OUAC to retrieve it).
  • Transcripts of all undergraduate and graduate work.
  • A completed statement of intent.
  • A résumé of your academic and work experience. Where applicable, include a history of your research experience and publication or conference activity, as well as any other information you feel will interest the admissions committee.
  • A sample of your scholarly writing (10-20 pages in length). This may be a paper written for a senior undergraduate course.
  • Completed reference forms. Two academic references are required. Note: Reference forms are electronically submitted to Laurier by the referee and do not need to be uploaded.

Proficiency in written and spoken English is essential to graduate studies at Laurier. Applicants whose language of instruction during their previous postsecondary education was not in English must submit evidence of proficiency in English. If applicable, results from accepted testing services must be uploaded to Laurier’s Online Viewing system.
