Program Information

School:McGill University
Faculty:Faculty of Arts
Degree:Bachelor; Honours
Field of Study:Women's Studies
Description:The Institute for Gender, Sexuality, and Feminist Studies (IGSF) has consolidated the previous Women’s Studies and Sexual Diversity Studies programs into one, newly titled program in Gender, Sexuality, Feminist, and Social Justice Studies (GSFS).

A careful analysis of the current programs in Women’s Studies and Sexual Diversity Studies indicates that critical approaches embedded in feminist and social justice frameworks have historically been integral to both fields. The Gender, Sexuality, Feminist, and Social Justice Studies program recognizes social justice as a driving concept inherent to the study of gender, sexuality, and feminism. Social justice frameworks incorporate critical race studies, disability studies, and Indigenous studies into the examination of gender, sexuality, and feminism.

Students can look forward to an interdisciplinary education grounded in these fields. In addition to the courses offered by the Institute, students will be able to take courses from a list of complementary offerings from departments throughout the Faculty of Arts.
