Applicants should begin work on the application as soon as possible.
No application can receive formal consideration until all documentation is received. All documents received in support of an application become the property of the University and will not be released or copied except to other officers of the University as required by University procedures.
Eligible applicants must apply for admission by following the process outlined below.
To find a potential supervisor, the applicant contacts a University of Lethbridge faculty member with expertise in the applicant’s research area. For assistance in identifying a potential supervisor, visit the Choosing a Supervisor section of our website.
The University of Lethbridge Experts Database is an information source that enables users the opportunity to search a wide variety of subjects and research areas.
The applicant is advised to provide the potential supervisor a copy of unofficial transcripts in the consultation process.
Should the previous program undertaken by the applicant show weaknesses, additional course work or other study may be required. Such work will not count toward the requirements for the master’s degree.
The following required admission decision documents must be submitted via the online application system, available at uleth.ca/graduatestudies/apply.
Three referees, two must be academic (each referee submits a confidential letter of reference articulating the student's background preparation and suitability for graduate work). The applicant must have studied with at least one referee.
By submitting this application, applicants authorize the University of Lethbridge to request transcripts on their behalf from institutions participating in ApplyAlberta (Alberta Post-Secondary Application System).
Official transcripts, including proof of graduation for the baccalaureate degree and transcripts of all post-baccalaureate work, if any, are required prior to course registration.
Applicants who have attended or are currently attending institutions NOT participating in ApplyAlberta must arrange to have official transcripts sent directly from the issuing institution to the Admissions Office. A list of participating institutions is available at applyalberta.ca.
The Departmental Review Committee reviews the application and makes a recommendation on admission to the Program Committee. The office of the School of Graduate Studies, on behalf of the Dean of the School of Graduate Studies, unofficially informs the applicant of the Program Committee’s decision. Official admission decision will be sent electronically from the Admissions Office. Applicants will be notified of their official admission status by the Admissions Office no later than April 1, July 1 or December 1. Successful applicants will be advised of registration procedures at that time.
Detailed admission information is outlined in the Master of Arts Program Policies & Procedures.
