22.1 General Information

The Master of Gender Studies degree allows students to examine critically - at an advanced level - how gender shapes our identities, our social interactions and our world. Students will incorporate, into their study, frameworks for thinking about power relations and the ways those relations are shaped and challenged by intersecting constructions of gender, race, class, sexuality, age, ability, and nationality.

Faculty members in the Department of Gender Studies bring research expertise and interests in a range of fields, including: citizenship and human rights; corporeal feminism; reproductive rights, auto-biography, and life writing; postcolonial and transnational feminisms; and First Nations studies. This master’s program offers a thriving environment that draws on the expertise of scholars from a wide range of academic disciplines.

The program is administered by the Department of Gender Studies and the Graduate Studies Advisory Committee.

The Graduate Co-ordinator, on behalf of the Department of Gender Studies, Graduate Studies Advisory Committee, makes recommendations to the Dean of Graduate Studies concerning admission, and financial support for students, and administers all other matters pertaining to the graduate program.

The Master of Gender Studies Degree offers, by full or part-time study, three degree options: thesis, project, or internship.
