Diaspora and Transnational Studies (Collaborative Specialization)

Program Information
Faculty: School of Graduate Studies
Degree: Doctorate
Field of Study: Ethnic, Cultural Minority, and Gender Studies, Other
Description The Collaborative Master’s and Doctoral Program in Diaspora and Transnational Studies is designed to bring together both social science and humanities at perspectives at the graduate level to augment our already existing tri-campus undergraduate program and to contribute to increased research collaboration among participants in the program. It is being set up in response to popular demand by advanced students of the current DTS undergraduate program as well as the many expressions of interest from students keen on thorough graduate training in the field from within Canada and well beyond. The Collaborative Program will be distinctive by being interdisciplinary as well as comparative. Whilst raising questions about diasporic communities in Canada, this will not be the primary focus of the Collaborative Program. Rather, the Canadian example will be a means towards understanding the nature of diaspora and transnationalism elsewhere in North America, Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Global South. Students must apply to and be admitted to both the Collaborative Program and a graduate degree program of a collaborating unit. Students who complete the program at the Master’s level will not be eligible for the program at the Doctoral level.
