Social work is concerned with individual and personal problems but also with broader social issues such as poverty, unemployment, discrimination, and domestic violence.

Human rights and social justice are the philosophical underpinnings of social work practice. The uniqueness of social work practice is in the blend of particular values, knowledge and skills, including the use of relationship as the basis of all interventions, counselling, and respect for the client’s choice and involvement. Our program provides advanced education for social work practice with individuals, families, groups and communities.

The M.A. program in Communication and Social Justice offers students a unique opportunity to pursue media studies in an environment conducive to addressing social justice issues. Read more
The M.A. program in Communication and Social Justice offers students a unique opportunity to pursue media studies in an environment conducive to addressing social justice issues. In particular, the M.A. in Communication and Social Justice bridges two main approaches to the study of communications, media and culture—namely, Political Economy and Critical Cultural Studies.

The political economy of communication typically concerns itself with how policies, regulations, technologies, media institutions, laws, and concentrations of wealth and power affect the media, and conversely the ways in which this affects social, political and economic power structures. Critical Cultural Studies has emerged as an area that focuses on cultural practices, representation in media texts, cultural production and consumption.

Taken together, these two approaches complement and inform one another impacting the interpretation of everyday communicative and symbolic environments.

Through advanced course work and research, the M.A. program will:
-Prepare students for careers in information/communication sectors such as: community-based public advocacy organizations, governmental and non-governmental organizations, communication policy analysis, media research, journalism and multimedia
-Prepare students to better understand and critically appraise the evolving social, cultural, political and technological environment
-Prepare students for entry into PhD programs in Communication and cognate fields

Program History

Established in 2002, the MA Program in Communication and Social Justice is a unique, student-centered program which offers individuals a distinctive opportunity to pursue their scholarly interests in a vibrant, diverse, and supportive environment. The program promotes innovative and original thinking, research, and practice.

Over the years, the program has attracted the interest of students from many parts of the globe—including Canada, the Caribbean, China, India, Mexico, Thailand, Venezuela and the United States. Such diversity has contributed to the rich tapestry of graduate student culture and research undertaken by former and current students.

Students in the program have presented their work at major international conferences on a wide variety of topics. Several have also been recipients of prestigious scholarships awarded by the Ontario Graduate Scholarship Program and the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada. Graduates of the program have gone on to pursue doctoral studies, teaching and law careers, and employment opportunities in the public and private sectors as well as in alternative media.
