Message from the Program Director
Since 1973, the Humanities PhD Program has served Concordia University as a premier site of innovative research, providing students with opportunities to pursue interdisciplinary projects across fields in the Humanities, Social Sciences, and Fine Arts. In 2007, the Humanities PhD Program became part of the newly created Centre for Interdisciplinary Studies in Society and Culture. Browse our site for information about the Humanities program for prospective students and current students, the scholarly and creative projects of Humanities students, the accomplishments of our alumni, and the wide range of expertise of Humanities associated faculty. Visuals throughout the site are of publications and artwork by Humanities students, alumni, and associated faculty. We look forward to seeing you at the varied activities of CISSC and its Humanities program events.
