Program Information

School:Carleton University
Faculty:Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences
Field of Study:Women's Studies
Description:Carleton’s Pauline Jewett Institute of Women’s and Gender Studies offers a program that engages students in critically understanding the key issues of feminist scholarship and their relationship to our lived experience. Students have the opportunity to engage in activist activities, study gender in courses across disciplines, and do a practicum placement with feminist groups from inside and outside the Carleton community. Central to our program is the consideration of how gender intersects with race, class, ethnicity, age, ability and sexuality. Students explore the practices and processes that impact on women’s and men’s lives in historical, socio-economic, cultural and political contexts.

A Post-Baccalaureate Diploma in Women’s and Gender Studies is available for qualified students who have already completed an undergraduate degree.
