Curriculum Studies & Studies in Applied Linguistics

Important Notes:

  • MA & PhD students must complete a program planning form with their supervisor, then enroll themselves in the courses they choose. Professional MPEd students will be enrolled in their mandatory courses by our staff a couple of weeks before the start of classes. Emails with more information will be sent to students just before enrollment opens each term.
  • Course descriptions are available here: MA & PhD, and professional MPEd
  • In certain circumstances, students from another program may take a priority or restricted course, space permitting (e.g. MA student taking an MPEd course as an elective). Contact your Graduate Affairs Assistant for more information and assistance with enrolling.
  • Students can take a maximum of 3 classes per term. To request permission to register for an additional 4th course, students must contact their Graduate Affairs Assistant.
  • Students do not need to enroll in milestones. They do not appear as a class in Student Centre but will show on students' academic records once completed.
  • Independent Reading & Research (IRR) courses must be approved by the Graduate Programs Office before students can be enrolled. These are completed individually with a supervisor and do not have assigned class times. Please review the IRR Guide and pay specific attention to the application deadlines.
  • Important Dates for the academic year can be found here.

** Note: Current students will be added to the Graduate Education Timetable Information OWL site where more details are available, the information on both this page and the OWL site is subject to change - please recheck periodically **
