Our graduate students are professionals, scholars and practitioners who contribute to Concordia's unique interdisciplinary learning environment, facilitating innovative research and research/creation in a diverse range of media practices and traditions.
Master of Design (MDes)
In the Master of Design program, students will be benefitting from the expertise of internationally renowned faculty in a stimulating environment. They will develop professional skills in design to prepare them for a broad range of career prospects in both profit and not for profit organizations, academia, research centres, and design/creative industries. The MDes program values the importance of critical inquiry and privileges intellectual exchange. Weekly meetings supervised by faculty constitute an important forum, where students can add depth and complexity to their ideas, in the formulation of their individual projects. Students have the opportunity, on a regular basis, to present their studio work at reviews attended by fellow students, faculty members, and invited critics. Committee members provide a focused response to this work and prepare students for their concluding research-creation project and exhibition.
Individualized Programs - MA/PhD
The Individualized Program (INDI, formerly SIP) was created by the School of Graduate Studies to offer a limited number of exceptionally capable students the opportunity to pursue areas of research not covered by existing graduate programs. Interdisciplinary study is the hallmark of INDI. Read more about cross-disciplinary research currents. For more information about Indivdualized Program, contact the INDI Coordinator.
Interdisciplinary Humanities PhD
The Humanities Doctoral Program: Interdisciplinary Studies in Society and Culture is housed within the Centre for Interdisciplinary Studies in Society and Culture, jointly administered by the Faculty of Arts and Science and the Faculty of Fine Arts. Serving as Concordia's premier site for interdisciplinary exploration since 1973, the Humanities Doctoral Program offers students an opportunity to pursue innovative interdisciplinary research and art-based practice in areas that span the Humanities, Social Sciences and Fine Arts.
