MA Program

The course-based, one-year MA program offers students the option, during their third term, of pursuing either a professional internship or a major research paper of roughly 40–50 pages written under the supervision of a faculty advisor elected by the student. Students have the option to concurrently enrol in one of the collaborative specializations at U of T, such as Sexual Diversity Studies, Women and Gender Studies, or Transnational and Diaspora Studies, which entails also registering for their specific core courses. The MA in Cinema Studies is a full-time program.

Due to multiple factors, we will not be able to consider any international MA applictions between 2022-2025, and re-evaluate the decision in 2025.

Please note: this program is dedicated to the critical study of cinema rather than training in filmmaking as a practice.
