O que eu aprenderei?

Learn about pressing local and global social-justice issues. Gender Studies courses encourage you to examine how gender, in relation to other categories of difference (race, class, sexuality, ability, age, and citizenship, etc.), shapes people’s lives, experiences, knowledge and possibilities. You’ll acquire a unique perspective on the world and your place in it.

Gender Studies offers Honours, Major and General programs leading to a Bachelor of Arts (BA). The Gender Studies program examines the complex and fascinating ways power circulates through the lives of individuals and groups. In both teaching and research, it explores how gender as a social construction intersects with other categories of difference, such as race, nation, citizenship, geographical location, class, sexuality, sex, ability and age, in the contexts of colonization, capitalism, globalization and transnationalism. Gender Studies, a discipline previously identified as Women’s Studies, continues to highlight historical and contemporary feminist scholarship, but also broadens this established approach with courses inclusive of queer and trans perspectives as well as the production of masculinities. Underlying all Gender Studies courses is the active pursuit of social justice enabled by critical analyses that expose inequalities and interrogate their systemic foundations in Canada and across the globe.
