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 Collaborative program in women's studies at the master's level is designed for students from selected disciplines in arts, education, health sciences, law, social sciences, and counselling and spirituality (Saint Paul University), who have an interest in women's studies. These students have the opportunity to combine advanced studies in their primary program with analyses from a women's studies perspective. The degree awarded is a master's degree in the primary program with a "specialization in Women's Studies".

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."

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.

Students who have a BA with honours or major in sociology, with a minimum average of 70% (B) calculated in accordance with graduate studies guidelines, may be admitted to the MA program.

Students who have an honours BA with a minimum average of 70% (B) in another discipline, calculated in accordance with graduate studies guidelines, may be accepted into a qualifying program, requiring them to complete a maximum of eight courses.

All students must be able to read and understand texts 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 reserves the right to require a language test for either language. 

The maximum number of students admitted annually in the MA in sociology in English is limited to the average of admissions to the French version in the previous three years. The maximum number of admissions for the current year is available from the secretariat of the School of Anthropological and Sociological Studies.

Collaborative Program in Women's Studies

This program was created to enable students to enrich their education in sociology by adding the interdisciplinary dimension of women’s studies. The women’s studies program consists of two compulsory women’s studies (FEM) courses as well as a thesis or research paper on a subject related to women’s studies. FEM courses are recognized by the master’s program in sociology. Students enrolled in the collaborative program therefore do not have to take any additional courses.

Students should indicate in their initial application for admission to the master's program in sociology that they wish to be accepted into the collaborative program. 

The main areas of specialization at the master's level include:

  • Interethnic relations
  • Development
  • Political sociology
  • Gender relations

Students are not limited to these areas of specialization when choosing a research topic for their thesis or research paper. For a more complete understanding of the breadth of research being conducted at the School, students can consult the list of professors and their areas of interest, which extend far beyond the areas of specialization mentioned above. 

In accordance with the University of Ottawa regulation, students can write their assignments, research papers, theses and examinations in either English or French.

Co-op Option

The MA in Sociology, with the assistance of the University of Ottawa’s co-op office, offers a co-op stream to a limited number of students who will request this option in their admission file. The co-op option gives selected students the opportunity to acquire practical work experience by completing two paid one-term, work placements. 

The option for the co-op stream is as follows. The first co-op placement will be in the summer of the first year, and the second work placement will take place in the fall of the second year. Students who enroll in the co-op option will obtain twelve units (six units per work placement) for their work experience. Each work term is graded P/F (Pass or Fail), based on the employer’s report and on a written report completed by the student. The student’s report must be 15 to 20 pages, including appendices. A regular professor from the School will evaluate the student reports. 

The units awarded for co-op work terms may not be used to obtain equivalences for other courses. In other words, the co-op units are additional to the minimum requirements of the degree. 

To remain enrolled in the co-op program, a student must: 

  • maintain full-time status; 
  • maintain a 7.0 grade point average; and
  • obtain a passing grade for each co-op work term

Duration of the Program

Students in the thesis option are expected to complete all requirements within two years of full-time study. Those in the research paper option are expected to complete within four terms (16 months) of full-time study. The maximum time permitted, whether full- or part-time, is four years from the date of initial enrollment in the program.

Residence

Students admitted full-time must enroll full-time for at least three terms.

Minimum Standards

The passing grade in all courses is C+. Students who fail two courses or whose research progress is deemed unsatisfactory are withdrawn from the program.

FEM 6501 Rapports sociaux de sexe, pouvoir et représentations (3 crédits)

Ce cours analyse les diverses théories féministes qui visent à formaliser les concepts de genre, de pouvoir et de représentation. Les représentations des différences entre les genres/les sexes y sont abordées sous l'angle de leur construction sociale, ainsi que des rapports de pouvoir qui leur sont intrinsèquement liés. Le cours examinera également la façon dont les rôles et les attentes quant au genre sont aussi façonnés par des représentations concernant la classe, « la race » et l'ethnicité, la sexualité, l'âge, la nationalité et la présence/l'absence de handicap.

Des sujets variés y sont abordés, qu'il s'agisse de l'intégration des rapports sociaux de sexe dans le développement de la santé, des initiatives novatrices permettant de faire entendre les voix féministes du sud ou encore des conséquences sur la santé de l'enrôlement massif des femmes du Tiers monde dans un marché du travail multinational et mondialisé.
