    BE A CRIMT STUDENT      
   
Why become a CRIMT ‘research student’?

To create a stimulating training environment is an important objective of the Centre and of its SSHRC-MCRI project. We want our students to be at the leading edge theoretically, to be skilled in interdisciplinary methodology, and to fit easily into international research networks. We want to train a generation of researchers who are capable of developing innovative, strategic and socially relevant projects.

We have developed a series of initiatives aimed at achieving this goal. All of them rely on the solid involvement of students in the Centre’s activities. In terms of financing, CRIMT offers several funding programs (as part of its SSHRC-MCRI project) : a studentship program that aims to support the training of the best graduate students and promotes their integration into the CRIMT SSHRC-MCRI program, an international exchange program that allows graduate students to undertake one or several research visits abroad, particularly in institutions where CRIMT co-researchers are based, a dissemination program that enables doctoral students to present their work at international conferences, and a recruting program that aims to promote the recruitment of the best doctoral students and facilitate their integration into the Centre’s research program. CRIMT also organises a large number of scientific outreach activities, including an annual doctoral school that enables doctoral students in Quebec, Canada and overseas to discuss various issues and challenges linked to the doctoral process, and a series of regular seminars, of international seminars and of international conferences in which graduate students are invited to participate, usually free of charge.


How do you become a CRIMT ‘research student’?

Are considered CRIMT students those who are registered in a formal master’s or doctoral program, are studying under the supervision of a CRIMT co-researcher and whose research project is related to one of CRIMT’s SSHRC-MCRI sub-projects (and in which his or her research supervisor or co-supervisor is involved). The list of student members and the number of the project to which they relate is availble in the 'Student section', under the CRIMT heading.

If you would like to become a CRIMT research student, please contact us or one of our co-researchers. Tell us about your research interests and take a look at the admission requirements for the various programs. Discover a new way of pursuing your graduate studies!


Programs of Study – CRIMT Partner Universities

CRIMT has three partner universities in Quebec: Université de Montréal, Université Laval and HEC Montréal. They give financial support to CRIMT and provide work space, which is in addition to the grants CRIMT receives from the Fonds québécois de recherche sur la société et la culture (FQRSC - programme des regroupements stratégiques) and from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC – Major Collaborative Research Initiatives program). Whilst we invite you to consult the full list of CRIMT co-researchers and explore the various programs of study offered by their various departments (in Canada and overseas), the following section focuses on some of the programs offered by CRIMT’s partner universities. Students already admitted or in the process of being admitted to one or other of these Departments, Faculties or Services are invited to contact their future research supervisor who, if applicable, may encourage them to make an application to the CRIMT Recruitment Program (French section of this site).

Faculté des arts et des sciences
Pavillon Lionel-Groulx

Montréal (QC)
Canada, H3T 1N8


Introduction

In the Montreal region, the School of Industrial Relations is the largest academic institution providing specialist teaching in the fields of human resource management, collective labour relations and government policy relating to the world of work.     

In all three areas, the School’s professors underpin their teaching with cutting edge research on subjects such as; new forms of remuneration, international human resource management, the aging workforce, technological change, human resource management information systems, performance management, psychological stress at work, the effective management of health and safety at work, the evolution of collective labour relations and unionism in the context of globalization, new forms of collective bargaining, the relationship between labour rights and human rights, sub-contracting and collective agreements, the evaluation of the implementation of the law on training and labour development, the enforcement of the law on equal pay, the development of forms of labour regulation within the context of economic globalization, etc.


Graduate Studies Programmes

Masters Program

The master’s program in industrial relations has been in place since the founding of the School in 1945. Over the years, the program has been changed and adapted to reflect the current context of the dynamic labour market, characterised by a change in the role of the IR/HRM professional from being that of an advisor towards taking on a more strategic and consultative role at the heart of the organization. Furthermore, given the multidisciplinary nature of industrial relations, the master’s program is intended not only for those who hold a bachelor’s degree in industrial relations, but also for those who hold bachelor’s degrees in related disciplines such as psychology, business, law, sociology, economics and political science. However, graduates of other disciplines must undertake two semesters (8 months) of a foundation course (preparatory training) before accessing the regular master’s program. The aim and structure of the program takes these requirements into consideration.


PhD Program

The doctorate in industrial relations is intended for those who have a master’s (or equivalent) in industrial relations or in a connected field (for example, in psychology, business, sociology, law and legal science, economics, political science, or in another field deemed relevant), and who are interested in making a career in university teaching and/or advanced research in industrial relations.     

The program is one of the best known in Canada and welcomes both Quebec students and students from overseas. The program also offers opportunities for joint supervision with some foreign universities.

Introduction

In terms of several of its characteristics, such as the number of professors, students and programs, the Faculty of Law at the University of Montreal is the largest in Quebec and Canada. It has sixty professors who, with the support of several law practitioners, provide teaching to around 1300 students who are enrolled in both undergraduate and graduate studies, with almost a third of those registered embarking on our various graduate programs. The majority of students study full-time.

The Faculty offers complete and varied legal training, opening up opportunities for those wishing to go on to practice law or to pursue careers where knowledge of law is a major asset.

The Faculty has been a place of teaching and research for more than a century and, over the course of the years, has contributed in a significant way to the development of law and the recognition of law as an academic discipline. Located in a stand-alone building in which there is a full library and a computer laboratory, the Faculty focuses its priorities on the challenges facing the lawyers of the future.


Graduate Studies Programs

Masters Program

The Faculty of Law’s master’s research program has two objectives : to offer courses which act as an addition to the general training provided at the undergraduate level; to develop, through the writing of a thesis, the ability to conceive and complete a medium-sized research project in a specific area.

The development of a research project and writing a thesis is an important component of the program. The student is expected to work closely with a professor who supervises the research project: it is the student who chooses his/her supervisor from amongst the specialists in the field (see below the list of the Faculty of Law professors who are CRIMT co-researchers).


PhD Program

The doctorate is essentially an in-depth research project. 
       
The pedagogical activities are directed towards the development of the student’s thesis project. During the first two semesters, compulsory seminars focus on the theories and philosophy of law, legal epistemology and the construction of a thesis project, as well as analysis and methodology, for a total of 9 credits. 

It is also necessary during this period to choose a supervisor who will support and guide the student through the process of developing the project and writing the thesis. In this regard, the Faculty offers students a choice of specialists in all the major areas of law. Co-supervision, undertaken by two professors, is quite common, as it enables the student to profit from complementary expertise (see below the list of Faculty of Law professors who are CRIMT co-researchers).

Introduction

Founded in 1852, the Faculty of Law at Université Laval was the first francophone institution to provide teaching in law in North America. Since then, the quality and excellence of its research have made it one of the leading law schools in Canada.      

Its graduate studies programs reflect the vitality and size of the Faculty’s research activities as well as the scientific influence of its faculty members. The programs prepare graduates to practice law anywhere in Canada, in the offices of lawyers and notaries, in corporations, or in federal, provincial or municipal government offices. The training that they receive allows them to aspire to become leaders in their profession and in their communities.


Graduate Studies Programs

Masters Program

The master’s degree in law (with thesis) seeks to develop the student’s aptitude for legal research. The program focuses on methodological training, both as part of the tuition and during the writing of the thesis.     

The master’s program focuses on the following areas: civil and comparative law; environmental law, sustainable development and food safety; human rights and collective rights; law and society; international and transnational law; company law. Courses are also given in other areas of law. Similarly, the thesis can focus on any law topic which fits in with the extensive professorial and research resources of the Faculty.


PhD Program

The doctoral program aims to train independent researchers capable of making a substantial and direct contribution to the advancement of knowledge.

To be eligible for the program, the person must hold a master’s degree in law from a Canadian university or an equivalent degree (such as the D.E.A. or a Masters). A person whose master’s degree training had no significant research work is not eligible, unless his/her records show a capacity to independently complete a major research project.
