Course content

The University of Winnipeg offers four joint masters programs in the areas of History, Religious Studies, Peace & Conflict Studies and Public Administration.


The University of Winnipeg and The University of Manitoba established four joint masters programs. The resources of both universities were thus made available for graduate work to the Masters level in these disciplines. Students enrolling in a Joint Masters Program enjoy at both universities all the rights and privileges normally accorded to graduate students; two months before their expected date of graduation they shall declare in writing the university from which they wish to receive their degree.

As part of the agreement establishing these Joint Masters Programs, it was arranged that administrative aspects, e.g. admission, registration, etc. would be entirely in the hands of the Faculty of Graduate Studies at The University of Manitoba. All prospective graduate students must complete the official application for admission to the Faculty of Graduate Studies at the University of Manitoba and consult with the Graduate Chair at The University of Winnipeg.


The joint Master of Arts program is offered by the History Departments of The University of Winnipeg and The University of Manitoba. Courses and thesis direction are offered at both institutions, and students completing the program may elect to receive their degrees from both of the participating universities. Students may choose between a course M.A. and a thesis M.A. The first involves four courses, three of which should be 7000/700-level History courses. In addition, the student is required to select a major field, and must pass both a written and an oral comprehensive examination upon that field. The second choice involves two 7000/700-level courses and the presentation of a thesis. In both programs the student is required to demonstrate a reading knowledge of a second language (French for Canadian History).
