Degree Offered: M.A.S.
The Master of Archival Studies (M.A.S.) program is a professional degree program, open to those holding a bachelor's degree considered suitable by the admissions committee and which meets the minimum admission requirements of the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies. Archival work is related to that of many other disciplines, including history, political science, business administration, and sociology. The program is unique in North America as the only separate graduate degree program in the field. Graduates obtain positions as archivists and records managers across Canada in businesses, government agencies, religious bodies, and institutions; some engage in freelance work.
