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 Women’s Centre, the International Centre, Aboriginal Services, the African Canadian Cultural Club, Queerical up North, the Diversity Committee, and the Environmental Action Committee.
