About the Program
Our faculty, drawn from Laurier’s departments of Religion and Culture and Global Studies, are specialists in disciplines across the social sciences and humanities and conduct research around the world. We bring our diverse knowledge and expertise into the classroom and to our student supervision to foster transformative learning and the spirit of free inquiry.
The interdisciplinary nature of the Master of Arts (MA) in Religion, Culture and Global Justice program prepares you to move into professional arenas within and outside of academia, such as:
- International relations and public policy
- Interreligious dialogue and peace-building
- Refugee and migrant resettlement
- Institutional human rights and diversity policy
- Journalism and communications
- Programming on multiculturalism and community development
We encourage you to interrogate conventions and develop new modes of ethical engagement. In doing so, we seek to cultivate the critical skills and the knowledge that you need to succeed both within and beyond the university.
We also offer a PhD in Religious Studies.
