The Cultural Analysis and Social Theory program from Wilfrid Laurier University is designed to foster the type of critical inquiry that extends beyond the boundaries of a single academic discipline. Working with professors from across the humanities and social sciences, you gain a comprehensive perspective on the diverse theories and critical methodologies essential to understanding contemporary culture and society.
Through coursework and an optional independent research project, you refine your critical thinking and analytical skills, broaden your perspective on contemporary issues and gain new insights into the social and cultural forces that shape the modern world.
The program welcomes students from a wide variety of undergraduate disciplines and universities across Canada and around the globe. We offer a lively and intellectually engaging program designed to enable you to successfully conduct your graduate studies in a supportive student-centred environment.
