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.

The minimum requirements are:

  • A four-year honours undergraduate degree (or equivalent) from a recognized university;
  • Several years of experience as a senior-level manager, director or executive in a technology-focused company or technology-adept organization;

Applicants must also meet the university’s minimum requirement for admission into a graduate program. If you do not meet these requirements, you may still be considered under exceptional circumstances. Please contact us for further information if you think this might apply to you.

Application Checklist

  • A completed statement of intent.
  • A résumé of your academic and work experience. Include a history of your publication and scholarly paper activity and any other information you feel will interest the admissions committee.
  • A sample of your scholarly writing (10-20 pages in length).2 This may be a paper written for a senior undergraduate course.
