Graduate Studies

Seneca honours bachelors degree graduates are eligible to apply to master’s level studies provided they meet all outlined admission requirements. After completion of your undergraduate degree, a master’s (graduate) degree generally requires at least one year of full-time studies, including a thesis developed through original research, practicum or research paper once an undergraduate degree has been completed.
