Tuition & funding
The MA in Sociology allows you to gain advanced training in a wide variety of sociological methods and theories. Our courses and materials explore the traditional foundations of sociology while also offering opportunities to consider new and emerging areas of social inquiry. You will conduct studies that address contemporary social problems and examine various cultural practices that impact individuals on personal, local and global levels. Our faculty members have connections to multiple research centres, such as the Centre for the Interdisciplinary Study of Culture and Society, the Centre for Broadcasting and Journalism Studies, the Centre for Technoculture and Games (TAG), and the newly launched Milieux Institute for Arts, Culture and Technology. Well-known for encouraging students to participate in local, national and international research projects, our faculty also includes Quebec's first-ever Research Chair on Gambling.
Fully-qualified candidates are required to complete a minimum of 45 credits.

Priority will be given to complete applications submitted by the deadline. In some cases, programs may continue to accept applications as long as there is space available.
International students: Considering the waiting period involved in meeting the entry requirements to Canada and Quebec, we strongly encourage international applicants to apply early and submit supporting documents prior to the deadline.
Tuition and fees of the program may depend on your student status, among other key factors. Estimate these costs based on the most common situations.
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.
Conduct research into a wide array of topics including gender, colonialism, media and technology, language, environmental politics and the senses.
