A deep understanding of women and gender relations is at the heart of the program. But this is not its boundary. Women’s Studies courses are concerned with social justice in its broadest sense. Students examine how race, social class, religion, sexual preference and gender shape society and culture in Canada and elsewhere.
Women’s Studies is intellectually stimulating, personally fulfilling and more practical than you might think. Whether you choose Women’s Studies on its own or in conjunction with another program, the skills and knowledge you gain will be valuable in workplaces where there is a need for employees who are informed, open-minded, and responsive to issues of equality, difference, and diversity.
Women’s Studies is excellent preparation for employment in a wide variety of business, social service, education, and government organizations.
