Overview

Master of Arts in Communication Studies

The graduate program in Communication Studies at McGill University offers M.A. and Ph.D. degrees. 

The program is concerned with the study of communication phenomena through interdisciplinary training that draws on various fields, including cultural studies; critical media and technology studies, public policy and governance; film; and sound studies. 

The program strives to offer a balance of humanities and social sciences approach to the analysis of communication, and its orientation is primarily qualitative (rather than quantitative) in nature. 

The M.A. and Ph.D. degrees are academic in character and do not include professional training in journalism, organizational communication, or media production. 

The Communication Studies program offers courses and directs project research in preparation for the M.A.(Thesis) and Ph.D. in Communication Studies.

Language pathway (conditional offer) is available
Eligible to apply without language certificate

There is no language requirement for MA students. All students, M.A. and Ph.D., must be proficient in the English language.
Proficiency can be demonstrated by any of the following means:

proof of native fluency (e.g., primary and secondary education in the chosen language);

proof of two years of post-secondary study (i.e., the equivalent of 12 credits) in the chosen language at an intermediate level with a minimum grade of B in all courses;

passing a translation examination administered by the Department.

Translation exams: students shall translate into English 1000-1500 words of non-fiction prose in the chosen language, selected from a text determined by the supervisor. The English translation should demonstrate that the candidate has a highly-reliable reading knowledge of the chosen language. The candidate may use a translation dictionary during the examination. The examination will last no longer than 2 hours. The examination will be graded pass/fail. There is no penalty for not passing the examination, or taking the examination more than once. The language requirement should be satisfied no later than the end of the candidate’s third year in the program.
