MA and PhD Admissions Information Session

When and Where

Friday, October 22, 2021 3:00 pm to 4:30 pm
Online (Zoom)


Join us for an information session on graduate education in the Department for the Study of Religion. The Director of Graduate Studies and current graduate students will be on hand to answer your questions about how to submit the best possible application, what to expect in your first year of graduate school, expectations regarding language preparation, and other common questions.  Contact for the Zoom link.

For domestic MA students we have also implemented the supports below:

  1. We will be hosting a workshop on “Applying for the CGSM MA SSHRC Grant” which is open to students from all universities in Canada. Students from religion undergraduate programs as well as cognate fields (e.g. History, Anthropology, Political Science, Indigenous Studies, etc.) are welcome to attend.  This workshop will be on Thursday October 28th from 1-2pm.  
  2. Professor Karen Ruffle (MA SSHRC Faculty Writing Mentor) is available to provide individual feedback to domestic MA SSHRC applicants (both from the University of Toronto and other Canadian universities) on their application research statement.
  3. We will provide funding for up to two domestic MA students for 2022-2023. This funding will cover tuition fees and provide a $5000 admission award.
