Tuition & funding
The MA in Film Studies examines film as an artistic, cultural, and political medium. The main objective of this program is to expose students to different methodologies of film and media analysis, in order to understand the role of moving images in society and history. The program encompasses aesthetics, theory, and research methods that will help enable students to navigate their own relationship to the complex and pervasive viewing experiences of our digital world. While exploring the latest developments in moving image culture, we encourage students to develop their own research projects. You will connect with a dynamic group of students and develop your own areas of interest and benefit from some of the best research labs in Canada. Our internationally-renowned faculty is comprised of academics from a multitude of disciplines and institutions and includes four research chairs. Montreal's exceptional range of film venues, museums, galleries and artist-run centres means that students live and work in an incredibly vibrant and inspiring urban environment.
Fully-qualified candidates are required to complete a minimum of 45 credits.

Funding packages are generally available for students in thesis-based programs. They come in the form of awards, teaching and research assistantships are offered at the time of admission to most students to allow them to focus on their research and studies. Research and thesis-based students are automatically considered for all entrance graduate awards when they apply to Concordia, provided they meet eligibility criteria. No separate application is required.
The Quebec and Canadian governments offer a number of competitive graduate scholarships. We encourage you to apply for these awards at the same time you are preparing your application.
