Located in Toronto’s vibrant core, this one-year English MA affords students diverse learning opportunities. Innovative courses investigate modernity in literature from cultural, historical, and global settings. Students can pursue a major research paper, work as a teaching or research assistant, and complete a placement at a literary or cultural institution. Graduates have completed PhD studies worldwide, and work in fields such as writing, publishing, and teaching.

“Coming from the U.K., I’ve loved studying literature and different media in the heart of Toronto’s dynamic creative and cultural scene. We’re a small, dedicated group of students,
and I’ve made great friendships and had incredible support from teachers who have pushed me to grow as a researcher, and to apply successfully for PhD study.”
At Ryerson, we understand that pursuing graduate studies is a significant financial investment. Funding comes from a combination of employment contracts (as a teaching assistant), scholarships, awards and stipends. There are a number of additional funding sources – internal and external – available to graduate students that can increase these funding levels.
Finding a Supervisor
Students should apply to the program first. Applications that meet the minimum requirements of the program will be forwarded to faculty members in the program for review. Successful applicants will be invited to visit the program and meet with faculty members that are interested in supervising them as a graduate student in their research group. A matching system is used to find the best students/supervisor match (using input from both applicants and faculty members). After a suitable match is determined, an official offer of admission will be sent with the supervisor named in the offer.
