Look into Laurier

Join us at Laurier

Being 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

Applications will be considered until the program is full. 

Visit our Graduate Admissions Toolkit for more information about applying.

Application Checklist

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

An application for admission to the MA program in Social Justice and Community Engagement must include:

  • The application summary available from the online application.
  • Transcripts of all undergraduate and graduate work.
  • 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). 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.
