The Master of Arts program offers students in a wide range of disciplines the opportunity to earn a master’s degree by writing a thesis and successfully completing a limited number of courses. The number and details of the courses are determined within the first semester of the student's program.

Students may complete their degrees in either a full- or part-time capacity. Full-time students complete a 24-month program while part-time students complete a 48-month program. Part-time students will normally complete all required course work in the first 24 months, with the subsequent months committed to continued research and production of the Thesis. Although degrees are awarded in specific disciplines, the program is administered centrally by the School of Graduate Studies, rather than by individual departments or Faculties.

Course detail

Graduate degrees traditionally have been awarded for the successful completion of a satisfactory Thesis. The Thesis route expresses the fundamental tradition of academic scholarship. It also relates to the University’s undergraduate programs, because the creation of a Thesis in any discipline calls for a range of skills which are central to the liberal education tradition, including analysis and synthesis of ideas, empirical investigations, the construction and articulation of arguments, and writing skills.

Because of the nature of the M.A. program, the Thesis forms the central requirement of the program. At the master’s level, a Thesis involves close collaboration between supervisor and student. Consequently, it is necessary for a candidate to establish contact with potential supervisors prior to application for admission. Candidates seeking potential supervisors should contact either the relevant academic department or the School of Graduate Studies

Graduate Studies in Sociology

The University of Lethbridge offers two Masters level degrees. The Masters of Arts in Sociology (MA Sociology) program information can be found here. The Department also recognizes that some students will prefer an interdisciplinary degree, and because we share a commitment to interdisciplinarity, we also offer an Individualized, Multidisciplinary Master of Arts with a specialization in Sociology (IMMA Sociology).

Students taking an MA Sociology or an IMMA (Sociology) typically would be asked to take Social Sciences graduate courses in research methods, classical theory, contemporary theory and a professional seminar for social scientists, as well as directed studies relating to their thesis. The specific courses a student takes will depend on discussions with the student and supervisor, suggestions by the Sociology Graduate Admissions Committee and course availability in any given calendar year. Nevertheless, students can anticipate taking between 4 and 6 full graduate course equivalents during their MA programs.

The central experience of our Master's program is the creation of a thesis. At the Master's level, a thesis project involves close collaboration between supervisor and student. When applying for admission to our graduate program, students must also closely collaborate with potential supervisors. Students interested these programs should speak with a member of the Sociology department whose research areas fit with their own prior to application for admission to the program: Sociology Faculty Research Profiles

Co-operative Education & Internships

The Co-operative Education/Internship Option is available to students for the Master of Arts (MA) and Master of Science (MSc) programs. Co-operative education is an educational model that formally integrates academic study at the master’s level with relevant, paid work experience in appropriate employment fields such as government, institutions, and industry. The University, the employer, and the student are in partnership to ensure an enriching experience toward the student's professional development.

Students in the M.A. program in sociology at UBC have the opportunity to specialize in any one or more of the Department's seven major areas of specialization:

  • Environment, Community and Social Movements;
  • Family and Life Course;
  • Gender and Sexuality;
  • Health and Healthcare;
  • Knowledge, Culture and Power;
  • Race, Ethnicity and Immigration; and
  • Work, Economy and Globalization.

What makes the program unique?

UBC sociology has a strong tradition of publishing research that matters. A sample of recent and award-winning books include: Gillian Creese's The New African Diaspora (U. Toronto Press); Amin Ghaziani's There Goes the Gayborhood? (Princeton U. Press), Neil Gross' Why Are Professors Liberal and Why do Conservatives Care? (Harvard U. Press), Renisa Mawani's Colonial Proximities(UBC Press), Becki Ross Burlesque West: Showgirls, Sex, and Sin in Postwar Vancouver (U. Toronto Press), and Wendy Roth's Race Migrations (Stanford U. Press).

UBC sociology is the home to several important journals for the field, including the Canadian Review of Sociology (edited by Rima Wilkes), Sociological Theory (edited by Neil Gross), and Sojourners, Undergraduate Journal of Sociology (edited by UBC undergraduate students).

UBC sociology has a strong history of engaging in community and service oriented learning projects, providing students with hands-on learning experiences carrying out research for partnering organizations in and around Vancouver (e.g. RainCity Housing, SPEC, City of Vancouver, Neighborhood House Association, Be The Change). There is a strong co-op tradition, and the Department also runs the Immigrant Vancouver Ethnographic Field School (in conjunction with the Department of Anthropology).

Career options

There are many places to go with a Sociology degree from UBC. Alumni from our program work with Statistics Canada, with Indian and Northern Affairs, in the provincial health care sector, in an array of public service and non-profit positions, and in a range of private businesses, big and small. Alumni also succeed within academia, securing positions at leading Canadian universities (e.g., University of Toronto, Western University, University of Waterloo), as well as universities abroad.

The Master of Arts program in the Department of Sociology offers students sociological training in three core areas: sociological theory, methodology and statistics. Our program is research oriented and students are required to demonstrate competence in one substantive area of concentration through the successful completion and defence of their thesis projects.

The expertise of our faculty is wide-ranging. Under their supervision, students in the MA program have conducted original research on a variety of topics, including, for example: offence specialization amongst juvenile delinquents, social support and stress, Chinese social clubs, women athletes' perception of coaches, bisexual identity and politics, ethnic and gender inequality, contraceptive risk-taking, youthful involvement in prostitution, the subculture of sky-diving, trust and the health care system and perceived victimization.

Once students are admitted to the program, they have a variety of opportunities to get to know faculty research interests, and what might be possible for thesis project research at the Master's level.

The Master of Marriage and Family Therapy (MMFT) program is well established having graduated its first students in 1992. The strength of the MMFT is its clinical focus. The core of the program is the 500 hours of therapy under supervision that each student completes primarily at Aurora Family Therapy Centre located on The University of Winnipeg campus. Another reflection of the clinical focus is that all Faculty members are themselves practicing therapists, and all Supervisors are Approved by or Supervisors-in-Training with the American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy.

The program is structured to meet the needs of the part‑time student; this fits for those already working in the field who wish to develop a specialty in marriage and family therapy, and for those who are just beginning their career and need time and life experience to develop as a therapist.

Our student body is composed of persons from various backgrounds, the majority with some prior experience as helping professionals. We also have trainees who are choosing family therapy as their first profession, persons in mid-life who are totally changing their career direction, and retirees who are finally realizing a lifelong dream to achieve therapy credentials. We are committed to a policy of non-discrimination, and we welcome diversity, including differences in ethnic origin and sexual preference. Diversity in our learning community mirrors our pluralistic social context and enriches the experiential learning process for everyone.

Research and experience both substantiate that the core predictable indicator of successful therapy is the person of the therapist; thus much attention is paid to this dimension in the MMFT program. Students are taught a variety of therapy theories and are invited to attend to their own professional and personal development in order to become the best therapist possible.
