MA admission requirements
Applicants must meet the general admission requirements of their preferred university.
Typically, a minimum admission average of B+ (77%) in the last two years of undergraduate study is required. Graduates from non-history programs and others may be admitted but an additional year of preparatory study may be required.
All three institutions admit students to the Tri-University program, but we recommend applying to the school where your preferred supervisor is located to ensure the best departmental fit. As a Tri-U student, you will be able to take courses at all three institutions but you will access academic and support services at your home institution.
|School||Academic requirements||Application documents|
|University of Guelph||Bachelor's degree in history with at least a high second class or 'B/B+' average.||
|University of Waterloo||Honours Bachelor's degree in history with a 77% average in History courses in the last two years of undergraduate study.||
|Wilfrid Laurier University||Honours Bachelor's degree in history with a minimum B+ average in the last 10 credits of undergraduate study.||
Complete the online application for your school of choice. Once the school has received your application fee, you will be able to upload your application documents to the online portal.
Applications will be processed by a committee at each university. Files will be shared among the three institutions if the candidate is qualified but support for their research interests is better found at another partner school. If this is the case, you do not need to apply again.
Priority consideration will be given to applicants who apply by February 1 application deadline. We recommend applying two weeks before the deadline to ensure sufficient time to upload your application documents and for referees to submit their reference forms.
Applications received after the deadline will be reviewed at the discretion of the admissions committee.
