Interested in the active pursuit of social justice? Curious about how to address different inequities in the world?

Gender studies focuses on pressing local and global social-justice issues. Examine how gender shapes people's lives, experiences, knowledge and possibilities in relation to Indigenous and racialized identities, class, sexuality, age, ability, geographical location and more.

For undergraduate students, we offer honours, major and minor/general program. The master's program is available by special arrangement.
