Graduate Studies in Folklore at the University of Alberta (Edmonton, Canada)

Країна: Канада;

Дедлайн: 15.01.2016



If you are interested in studying Ukrainian Canadian or other Ukrainian diaspora folklore and folklife on a Master or PhD level, the University of Alberta is the best place for that. Students have the choice of focusing on more philological topics, including oral verbal traditions, or dealing primarily with material culture, folk arts and performance genres. They learn about various traditions and how they exist in their diverse cultural contexts. Understanding is the key. You can get a good idea of the range of topics by looking at the theses and dissertations by our graduate students.


The deadline to apply for the 2016-2017 school year is January 15, 2016.

Application procedure

Prospective students should apply for the Media and Cultural Studies program in the Department of Modern Languages and Cultural Studies.


Please study the FGSR Graduate Program Manual and the Guide for Graduate Students in MLCS to ensure that you meet our entrance requirements.


Those accepted into the program, receive research assistantships from the Kule Folklore Centre (2 years for MA students and 4 years for PhD), which cover tuition and leave some money for modest living expenses. As part of their assistantship, research assistants work 12 hours a week from September to April at the Ukrainian Folklore Archives.

If you have any questions, email or contact the Director of the Kule Folklore Centre, Andriy Nahachewsky.
