The faculty, drawn from Wilfrid Laurier University’s departments of Religion, Culture and Global Justice, are specialists in disciplines across the social sciences and humanities and conduct research around the world. We bring our diverse knowledge and expertise into the classroom and to our student supervision to foster transformative learning and the spirit of free inquiry.
They encourage students to interrogate conventions and develop new modes of ethical engagement. In doing so, we seek to cultivate the critical skills and the knowledge that students need to succeed both within and beyond the university.
The MA in Religion, Culture and Global Justice would be a particularly good fit for candidates who contemplate pursuing further graduate studies (e.g. doctoral studies or professional programs in public policy or social work) or seeking employment in the NGO sector (e.g. nonprofit advocacy and organization: community development, refugee settlement, arts and culture) or education or journalism sectors.
The graduates have gone on to work in education, research, business and social services. Examples of jobs held by our graduates include:
- international student application coordinator
- NGO case worker
- multiculturalism policy analyst
- heritage planning specialist
- immigration program assistant
