Declaring a Gender and Social Justice major

For Waterloo Arts students

To declare a Gender and Social Justice major, students must be in good academic standing and have completed at least one GSJ course. Students in Year 1B can declare a Major but will not be admitted into the program until final grades for 1B have been processed.

You can declare a major in Gender and Social Justice by completing a Plan Modification form and emailing it to, or bringing it to the Philosophy Undergraduate Office, Hagey Hall 320. You may want to make an appointment to talk email the GSJ advisor, Carla Fehr, about which Gender and Social Justice plan is best suited for you.

If you are keen on studying Gender and Social Justice but also interested in another discipline, sign up for a Joint Honours. Please see your academic advisor for further information.

For Waterloo non-Arts students

Please apply for an Internal Transfer into the Faculty of Arts.  You can make an appointment with an academic advisor in the Arts Undergraduate Office located in Psychology, Sociology, and Anthropology (PAS) 2439.
