Modern Languages and Cultural Studies at the University of Alberta offers MA and PhD degree programs in four major areas: Applied Linguistics, Media and Cultural Studies, Translation Studies, and Transnational and Comparative Literatures.
The programs are:
• Interdisciplinary and transcultural focus
• Collaborative, student-centred programs
• Dual emphasis on academic and professional development
Bringing with them individual experiences in the study of diverse cultures and languages, students develop and explore research questions in a creative, dynamic, and international learning environment that emphasizes both academic and professional training. The programs feature interdisciplinary and transcultural seminars, a student-designed professional development portfolio, and colloquia that support collaboration and accelerated time to degree completion. Uniquely equipped with skills in cultural communication and a commitment to global diversity, our graduates pursue careers as leaders, educators, and researchers in settings as varied as community or government organizations, media firms, international foundations, or academic institutions.
The application deadline is January 15, 2017.
