Master of Arts – Women’s and Gender Studies

Our Master of Arts program offers expertise in understanding the complexities of gender.  Our students have an opportunity to work with dynamic faculty members who place social inequality struggles and strategies for change at the forefront of curriculum and research.  Within a globalization, transnational and intersectional framework, students can explore issues relating to:

  • social justice
  • violence
  • human rights
  • popular culture and digital media
  • sexuality and the body

The core learning objectives of our program include transnational feminist scholarship, critical research and thinking skills, interdisciplinary and grounded knowledge.  We also offer a collaborative specialization in African Studies.
