Students of the Gender Equality and Social Justice Department will receive a broad liberal education in Humanities and Social Sciences. Through a range of interdisciplinary perspectives, you will examine the social and cultural constructions of gender, sexuality, race and class, and how these social categories relate to our knowledge, experience, relationships and the quality of our lives.

Within Gender Equality and Social Justice there are three core areas of specialization: Culture and Criticism; Power and Inequality; and Human Rights and Social Justice. This diversity in program offerings gives our graduates the flexibility to enter MA and PhD programs or work in a diverse array of fields (Law, education, social work, government, policy, international relations, social and economic development, community development.)

Gender Equality and Social Justice students are often very involved in student life, from planning the annual International Women’s Week celebrations to participating in Take Back the Night or the December 6th Memorial. Our students are active in many campus groups and services including the Gender Equity Movement, the International Centre, Aboriginal Services, the African Canadian Cultural Club, Queerical up North, the Diversity Committee, and the Environmental Action Committee.

Nipissing University is continually ranked with A grades for:

  • Quality of Teaching
  • Campus Atmosphere
  • Class Size (A+)
  • Student Residences
  • Academic Support Services
    (According to Globe and Mail – GlobeCampus)

Don’t take it from us; here’s what students say:

  • "The best thing ... is being able to see your professors outside the classroom and they greet you on a first-name basis. There is nothing better than being able to talk to your professor like they are a friend."
  • "There is a large focus on research at the undergraduate level which does not always happen at larger universities. This gives Nipissing science students a path to further education and graduate schools."
  • "It is in a very scenic, northern setting. There are many trails on campus and a pond and waterfall to relax by to relieve stress and just think."
  • "The residences here are amazing with excellent dons and managers and activities. The residences are new and have amazing laundry, phone and kitchen facilities."
  • "Recreational and athletic programs offer a wide variety, lots of activities to sign up for, appropriate for all levels of skill."
