The University of Winnipeg welcomes applications to its M.A. in Cultural Studies program.

Our program has two streams: a Texts and Cultures stream<https://www.uwinnipeg.ca/cultural-studies/about-the-program/texts-and-cultures.html> and a Curatorial Practices stream<https://www.uwinnipeg.ca/cultural-studies/about-the-program/curatorial-practices.html>. Both programs take one year to complete on a full-time basis, two years to complete on a part-time basis.

The Texts and Cultures stream introduces students to a broad and interdisciplinary range of models, approaches, and ways of knowing across six key areas: Cultural Theory; Cultures of Childhood; Genders, Sexualities, and Cultures; Local, National, and Global Cultures; Manuscript, Print, and Digital Cultures; and Visual Cultures. The core Concepts in Cultural Theory course is strongly recommended for students in this stream.

The Curatorial Practices stream provides the benefits of an academic training in cultural studies with practical training oriented to the professional aspects of gallery and museum work. Students in this stream select from the roster of courses included under the umbrella of Texts and Cultures but are also required to take two additional courses tailored specifically to Curatorial Practices: The History of Museums and Collecting, and a Practicum in Curatorial Studies.

A course in Research Methods and Practice is required in both streams.

Students in the one-year, full-time program typically take three courses in the Fall term, three courses in the Winter term, and two courses in the Spring term. Students registered in the Curatorial Practices stream generally complete their practicum in the Fall and Winter terms.

Our MA cohorts are generally small and there are opportunities to connect with other University of Winnipeg groups such as the Cultural Studies Research Group, the Critical Race Network, the Centre for Research in Cultural Studies (CRiCS), and the Centre for Research in Young People’s Texts and Cultures (CRYTC). The M.A. Program in Cultural Studies is offered at the University of Winnipeg main campus, located in the heart of Winnipeg’s downtown arts precinct and within walking distance of the Exchange District, one of the most thriving contemporary art scenes in Canada.

All applicants are considered for an entrance scholarship. Through the University of Winnipeg Graduate Assistantship (UWGA) program, many M.A. students are employed as Research Assistants to faculty in various departments, including English; Geography; History; Rhetoric, Writing, and Communication; and Women’s and Gender Studies. Students are nevertheless encouraged to apply for external awards such as provincial scholarships (e.g. the Manitoba Graduate Scholarship) and the SSHRC Canada Graduate Scholarship.

Graduates from our program have gone on to pursue doctoral studies and launched professional careers in museums, galleries, and archives as well as a variety of profit and non-profit companies and organizations.

For more information, see our website here: UW Cultural Studies<https://www.uwinnipeg.ca/cultural-studies/>. Or contact Dr. Doris Wolf, Graduate Program Coordinator, at CulturalStudiesMA at uwinnipeg.ca<mailto:CulturalStudiesMA at uwinnipeg.ca>.

We acknowledge that the University of Winnipeg is on Treaty One territory and the land on which we gather is the traditional territory of Anishinaabeg, Cree, Oji-Cree, Dakota, and Dene Peoples, and on the homeland of the Métis Nation.
