Overview

Master of Arts - Italian Studies

The Department of Italian at McGill University provides two streams in its Master's program, the thesis option, and the non-thesis option. 

The course work, the thesis and/or research papers must demonstrate that the student possesses a sound knowledge of the language, is familiar with all periods of Italian literature and has developed the background and skills necessary to carry out scholarly research. 

Italian Studies' current areas of expertise and methodological orientations are broadly indicated below. 

Prospective applicants should also consult individual faculty members' research profiles on the Departmental website for more detailed information. They are also invited to send research inquiries to individual professors.

  • 19th, 20th, and 21st century narrative;
  • Medieval and Renaissance literature and culture;
  • Italian cinema from post–World War II neorealism to the present.

These areas are approached from the perspective of:

  1. relations with historical, social, and political contexts;
  2. intertextual relations with contemporary and antecedent works and movements in other European literatures and cultures, with a special attention to questions of identity construction;
  3. gender issues; and
  4. cultural studies.

Students enrolled in the M.A. (thesis) option complete seven 3-credit courses and write an M.A. thesis under the direction of a faculty member.
