The Department of Sociology and Anthropology offers programs leading to the Master of Arts (MA) and PhD in sociology. The MA program is offered both full- and part-time whereas the PhD program is offered full-time only. Both programs are offered in French and in English. All students must, however, complete at least two courses given in French. Linguistic support for partial French immersion is available. In accordance with University of Ottawa policy, examinations, assignments and the research paper or thesis may be written either in English or French. Two options are available for the MA, the MA with thesis and the MA with research paper.
The department offers a collaborative program in Women’s Studies at the MA level. For more information on this program, see “Admission”.
The programs operate within the general framework of the general regulations of the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies (FGPS) of the University of Ottawa, which are posted on the FGPS website.
