York University’s Faculty of Graduate Studies offers 50+ full- and part-time graduate degree programs and specialized graduate diploma programs encompassing the pure and applied sciences, business, health, law, fine arts, humanities and social sciences.

Delve into research to create, cure or explore in science, mathematics and sociology. Or dig into a practice-based program in fine arts, environmental studies, law, education, business or social work. Interdisciplinary options and specialized diplomas allow you to chart your own path.

Students can pursue joint and combined programs within York University as well as through partnerships with other institutions. The Schulich School of Business and the Graduate Program in Visual Arts offer a three-year combined program leading to both a Master of Business Administration and a Master of Arts or Master of Fine Arts. Environmental Studies and Osgoode Hall Law School have partnered to allow students to complete programs in environmental studies and law. Osgoode Hall Law School students can also pursue a combined JD/MBA or JD/MA.
