Students will normally complete the M.A. program in 12 months on a full-time basis and will be funded for one year. Financial support for incoming full-time students will include a teaching assistant-ship (currently worth ~ $11,600.00) for which the student normally works 260 hours over two terms, and a graduate scholarship which may vary, both the teaching assistant-ship and the graduate scholarship combined can total approximately $14,000.00 – $16,000.00 (international students may receive more than this amount over the course of one year).
Additional support in the form of research assistant-ships and research stipends may be available.
Applicants are also encouraged to apply for external scholarship funding, such as the Ontario Graduate Scholarship (OGS) and the CGS-M SSHRC, if they are eligible.
Please visit McMaster’s School of Graduate Studies website for more information regarding scholarships (select Office of Interdisciplinary Studies under the heading “Department/School”).
