Am I qualified for the MA program? What courses should I take in order to prepare myself for the MA program?
In recent years, the number of funding packages available to non-domestic applicants has been very small (a domestic applicant is a Canadian citizen or permanent resident of Canada; a non-domestic applicant is anyone else) and the funded positions for non-domestic applicants should be considered highly competitive.
I studied at an English language institution, do I need to submit proof of passing the English language requirement?
We do not have a thesis proposal template. The details of this requirement are on the FGS website and it should be written for an audience that is not a specialist in your field. The proposal should have several major elements: background for the area of research, an explanation of the problem you intend to work on, the techniques that will be used to solve the problem, what is new and innovative about what you are doing and why the result will be important (in 3500 words or less). You may wish to speak to an upper year student you know in your area and see if they are willing to share their version with you.
