How to Apply

Application Deadline: January 15th for the following Fall term admission.

*Students enrolled in the York Socio–Legal Studies Master’s program wishing to apply to the doctoral program must do so through the admissions office. Students must have completed the MA before entering the PhD program.

All incoming MA and PhD students will be assigned (based on common research interests) a faculty advisor who will provide advice on program requirements (including course selection) and, most importantly, will assist students in selecting permanent supervisors and supervisory committees. This formal advisory function is intended to help ensure a smooth transition from the initial point of entry into the program to the establishment of a full supervisory committee.

Application Procedures

  • All applicants must complete the Graduate Admissions Application Package available at York University—Graduate Admissions.
