Program Information

School:University of Regina - Faculty of Graduate Studies and Research
Field of Study:Linguistics
Description:The program in linguistics offers graduate work leading to a special case M.A. degree for students who have completed a B.A. Honours degree in linguistics, or equivalent. Applicants should send a transcript showing a linguistics degree or showing the courses in linguistics which they have taken, along with a statement of areas of linguistics in which they would like to do graduate research for their M.A. thesis. Participating faculty members can then assess whether more linguistics courses are needed in a qualifying year and which ones, or whether the student is eligible for admission as a fully qualified graduate student. The statement of research interests will help us design possible thesis topics and outlines with the applicant, and to see which faculty might serve on the thesis committee and as thesis supervisor. The student who is admitted to the M.A. program will take a minimum of 15 credit hours of graduate level courses, including Linguistics 830 and 880. In addition, a minimum of 15 hours of thesis research is required (Linguistics 901) which can be taken over several semesters. Participating faculty are housed in various departments of the university and its federated colleges, the only full-time linguistics personnel being in the department of Indian Languages, Literature and Linguistics in the First Nations University of Canada on the university campus. As such, the program has a primary focus on the linguistic structure of First Nations languages of the Americas.

Admission Requirements

Grade for Entrance Previous Year (%)*70
Prerequisites:*These courses are intended as guidelines. Speak to your guidance counsellor to see what courses are offered at your school.
    A baccalaureate graduating average of at least 70% is required. Applicants with a marginally lower 4-year average may be accepted if their performance in the last two complete years is significantly higher (75% or more). An applicant is to have the academic background required to undertake graduate studies in the chosen field. Applicants who fail to meet this requirement but who otherwise meet the criteria may be admitted; however, background deficiencies will be addressed by taking appropriate courses either prior to or in parallel with graduate work.
    Additional Admission Requirements:
      Letters of recommendation, preferably from former professors or persons acquainted with the work of the applicant, and in a position to comment critically on the capability to do graduate research or course work, must support this promise of ability.

      * The entrance grade may change from year to year. Please contact the school for further information.

      * We make every attempt to provide accurate information on prerequisites, programs, and tuition. However, this information is subject to change without notice and we highly recommend that you contact the school to confirm important information before applying.
