The School of Sociological and Anthropological Studies offers the following programs: Master of Arts (MA) and PhD in sociology; Master of Arts (MA) in anthropology. In addition, the School participates in the following collaborative programs: women's studies (master's level) and Canadian studies (doctoral level). 

The MA in sociology is offered as a full-time and a part-time program, in French and in English. In English, the maximum number of annual admissions is fixed according to the procedure explained in the "Admission Requirements" section. In accordance with the University of Ottawa regulation, students may write their assignments, research papers, theses and examinations in either English or French.

Two options are available for the master's program: the MA with thesis and the MA with research paper, to which admissible students may add the co-op option. Students in both options are eligible for admission to the collaborative program in women's studies. For more information, see the section "Apply for Admission".

The PhD in sociology is offered as a full-time program only, in English and in French. However, both required seminars are offered in French exclusively. The doctoral program aims to train sociologists capable of conducting research on the social relations that define the conditions of existence and the transformations of contemporary societies, while using the most up-to-date theoretical and methodological tools. The program’s two main fields of research are minorities and culture, and political sociology. Students in the doctoral program are eligible for admission to the collaborative program in Canadian studies. For more information, see the section "Apply for Admission".

Because of its strength in relevant areas, its bilingual character and its location in the national capital, the University of Ottawa is uniquely positioned to offer a collaborative program leading to a specialization in Canadian Studies at the doctoral level. The program is especially designed for doctoral students in selected programs in the humanities and the social sciences who wish to enrich their training in a particular discipline by including an interdisciplinary component. The program is governed by the general regulations in effect for graduate studies.

Professors in the School of Sociological and Anthropological Studies conduct research in a number of areas. For a more complete understanding of the breadth of research being undertaken at the School, students are encouraged to consult the list of professors and their areas of interest, which extend well beyond the fields of research mentioned above.

The programs are governed by the general regulations in effect for graduate studies.

Learn more on application deadlines, language requirements and more by visiting the specific requirements webpage.

To be admitted to the PhD program, applicants must hold a master's degree in sociology (or equivalent) and have an overall average of at least 75% (B+), calculated in accordance with graduate studies guidelines. A student who has a master’s degree with the required average in a related discipline may be considered. He or she will be asked to take a number of additional master's courses. The number of extra courses required is determined by the Graduate Studies Committee, upon examination of each candidate's file.

Admission to the doctoral program also depends on the possibility of finding a supervisor and a committee specialized in the student’s field of interest.

In addition to transcripts and letters of recommendation, the application for admission to the doctoral program should include a letter that specifies:

  • the proposed research area;
  • the specific research topic for the doctoral thesis;
  • the preferred supervisor;
  • the candidate's language skills (English and French). The applicant must also include a sample of written work.

All students must be able to read and understand texts written in French and in English. Students must indicate in their application the language in which they plan to take the majority of their courses. The School of Sociological and Anthropological Studies reserves the right to require a language test for either language.

For information on fast-tracking from the master's to the PhD, see below.

Collaborative Program

The School of Sociological and Anthropological Studies is one of the participating units in the collaborative program in Canadian studies (PhD level only). This program was created to allow students to enrich their education in sociology by adding the interdisciplinary dimension of Canadian studies. The seminar (CDN 6520 or CDN 6910) is recognized by the School as part of the PhD degree requirements. Students enrolled in the collaborative program therefore do not have to take any additional courses.

To be accepted into the collaborative program, students must be already enrolled in at least one graduate course in sociology with Canadian content or must have already passed such a course. The degree of those who successfully complete the interdisciplinary seminar (CDN 6520 or CDN 6910) and a thesis with Canadian content will indicate a “specialization in Canadian studies.” For more information, see the description of the program posted on the graduate studies website.

Fast-Track from Master's to PhD

Students enrolled in the MA program in sociology at the University of Ottawa who meet the condition indicated below may be allowed to transfer to the PhD program without completing the master’s thesis or research paper.

The conditions for transfer are as follows:

  • successful completion of at least five graduate courses (15 units), with a minimum grade of A- in each;
  • written approval of the research paper or thesis supervisor as well as members of the thesis committee;
  • approval of the Graduate Studies Committee of SSAS. The Committee makes its decision on the basis of written reports on the student's research skills, from the student's research paper or thesis supervisor.

The transfer must be requested within 16 months of the student's initial enrollment in the master's program and the transfer must be approved before the end of the fourth term such that students enroll in the PhD program in the fifth term. Following transfer, students must successfully complete four courses (12 units), in addition to the five courses (15 units) already completed, the qualifying exams (within 24 months after transfer), the thesis proposal, and the doctoral thesis.

Note(s)

1

Before registering in CDN 6520, students must check to see whether this course can replace a three unit course in their primary program. CDN 6520 is offered only in French.

2

These courses are normally chosen among the graduate courses in sociology, but one of them may be from another discipline.

3

Initial enrollment in SOC 9910 occurs in the student’s third term. If a comprehensive exam is failed, it may be rewritten once. A second failure is regarded as final, and the candidate will be withdrawn from the program.

4

Successful completion of the comprehensive exam is a prerequisite for proceeding to SOC 9930. The thesis proposal must be approved by the thesis committee. A student whose proposal is not accepted on the first submission may be allowed to submit it a second time. A student whose proposal is rejected a second time will be withdrawn from the program.

5

Submission and successful defence of a thesis on a Canadian topic in the participating unit. The proposed topic must be approved by both the participating unit and the Canadian Studies Graduate Committee. At least one of the examiners of the thesis must be a person chosen in consultation with the executive committee of the Institute of Canadian and Aboriginal Studies.

During the first term, a thesis committee (consisting of three members, including the thesis supervisor) is assigned to the candidate. The composition of the committee is confirmed at the end of the first year. This committee (including a fourth member from outside the School) is responsible for approving the thesis proposal and comprehensive exam.

Minimum Standards

The passing grade in all courses is C+. Students who fail two courses (equivalent to 6 units), the thesis proposal, or whose research progress is deemed unsatisfactory are withdrawn from the program.

Residence

The program is intended for full-time students. All students must complete a minimum of six terms of full-time enrollment at the beginning of the program. In the case of students fast-tracking from the master's to the PhD, the minimum residency period is nine terms, at least six of which must be at the doctoral level.

Duration of the Program

The program is designed as a four-year program, and students are expected to complete it within four years. All requirements other than the thesis must be fulfilled by the end of the sixth term of enrollment. The maximum time permitted for completing the program is six years from the date of initial enrollment in the program, or seven years in the case of students fast-tracking from the master's to the PhD.

Thesis Advisory Committee

During the first term of the program, a thesis advisory committee (TAC) is formed for the candidate. The Committee’s membership will be determined by the specific interests of the candidate. It will be composed of the supervisor and 2 to 3 additional professors. At least one member of the thesis committee, in addition to the supervisor, must be from the Faculty of Social Sciences. The TAC is responsible for providing guidance to the student throughout the program, including course selection, the comprehensive examination, thesis proposal and thesis defense.

A meeting between the student and the Thesis Advisory Committee takes place at least once per term. The thesis examining board may include members who are not part of the TAC.
