Overview

Master of Arts in World Literatures and Cultures

The Master of Arts in World Literature and Cultures is the first and only program of its kind in Canada. 

This one-year MA brings together areas of study such as literature, film, media, socio-linguistics, gender, diasporas and minorities. The program explores the comparative and interdisciplinary nature of world cultures and arts, both past and present. 

It draws upon the combined expertise of professors from the Department of Modern Languages and Literatures and from other departments in both the faculties of Arts and Social Sciences. 

Discover how identities are shaped by cultural expressions in a national and transnational context. Explore the nature of representation and cultural diversity. Expand your intercultural knowledge in the dynamic setting of the nation’s capital. 

The program is offered both full- and part-time. The two compulsory courses in the program are offered bilingually and the others are offered in rotation in French and in English. 

In accordance with the University of Ottawa regulation, students have the right to produce their work, their research papers or theses, and to answer examination questions in French or in English. 

The program is governed by the general framework of the general regulations in effect for graduate studies.
