If you are interested in applying to our program or would like further information, we would like to hear from you. Prospective students should be aware that we have moved to a biennial intake model for the Masters degrees in Germanic, Slavic and Holocaust Studies. Our next in-take will be for fall 2022, with an application deadline of January 15, 2022.

Checklist for Admission:

Applicants should usually have a minimum overall B+ average (6.0 GPA), or a minimum A- average (7.0 GPA) in the final year of all their undergraduate work. Applicants who have appropriate community-based experience in the field of Holocaust Studies may be considered for admission without meeting the full requirements indicated above.

Applicants are required to demonstrate their reading competency in one research-appropriate language (other than English) prior to entering the program. Depending on the nature of the proposed thesis or research project, students may be expected to reach higher proficiency levels in a research-appropriate language during their studies.

Students must apply by January 15 to be considered for fellowships and scholarships.

Applications are made on-line to the Faculty of Graduate Studies. If you are planning to apply to this stream, please contact our Graduate Advisor. There are some important steps that our first cohort of students will need to know before they submit their application.

Application packages should include:

  • An application form
  • Official transcripts
  • An updated CV
  • A short Statement of Intent (1-2 pages stating the research area you wish to focus on)
