Gender and Social Justice enables students to critically analyze gender relations across various social, historical, and geographic contexts. GSJ prepares students to enter the world and advocate for gender and social justice.

Here’s why you should study with us:

  • A Gender and Social Justice degree can serve as a launching pad for a number of careers, and can complement other degree programs in the sciences, business, humanities, or arts.

  • Developing expertise in gender, diversity, equality, and social justice enhances marketability.

  • Gender and Social Justice is grounded in an interdisciplinary core of courses that provide a foundation for multidisciplinary work.

  • Students have the opportunity to work with a range of professors and students across multiple disciplines.

  • Students develop a multidisciplinary toolkit of analytic and research skills that can enrich their particular chosen academic trajectory.

  • Gender and Social Justice provides opportunities for experiential learning.

  • Upper-year classes are small and interactive with class discussions and student participation.

Gender and Social Justice offers several plans for majors and minors.

To see how Gender and Social Justice can apply from a personal to a global level, please watch the Gender and Social Justice launch lecture by award-winning journalist Shree Paradkar titled "Rise, disrupt, change - and do it all over again", based on her research as the 2018-2019 recipient of the Atkinson Fellowship in Public Policy from the Canadian Journalism Foundation.
