Graduate Studies Programs

Joint Master’s Program

The M.A. Program (called the Joint Master’s Program or JMP) is offered jointly by the History Departments of the University of Manitoba and the University of Winnipeg.

The Program was initiated in the 1976-77 academic year, and revised in 1996, making available to graduate students the combined resources of two universities. A Joint Discipline Committee, comprised of representatives of the two institutions, conducts the Joint Master's Program. Courses and thesis direction are offered at either or both institutions, as their Program dictates, and JMP students will be afforded graduate student privileges at both locations. Students graduating from the Program will receive a joint parchment.

The department of history at the University of Winnipeg acknowledges that we live and work in the ancestral and traditional territories of the Anishinaabe, Anishininew, Assiniboine, Cree, Dakota, Dene, Métis Nations. We also acknowledge that the discipline of history has been used to support programs of dispossession and assimilation directed against Indigenous peoples. Teaching and learning Indigenous histories allows us to confront colonial history as well as honour and respect the people who have called this place home for millennia.
