Wilfrid Laurier’s Master of Arts (MA) in Communication Studies program seeks students with open minds to explore new approaches to media, communication, and culture in a challenging, rewarding, and supportive environment. Exploring the interplay of power and communication, this program provides advanced training in core theories and methodologies in communication studies and critically engages contemporary research themes in the discipline.

Wilfred Laurier’s program is animated by interdisciplinary faculty with expertise in areas such as alternative media, cultural and creative industries, digital cultures, global media, health communication, media history, mobilities, popular music, social media, visual communication, and beyond.

Normally completed in 12 months, the MA in Communication Studies offers three options of study: major research paper and coursework; thesis and coursework; coursework only.

The Major Research Paper (MRP) option is the default for admission. All students are accepted to this option and may apply to change to the thesis or coursework option after consultation with the graduate coordinator.

A cooperative education program, with limited enrolment, is open to full-time students.
