Arts courses tackle gender issues from all angles

The Faculty of Arts is working to bring gender issues to the forefront by engaging students across a variety of disciplines. Details

Philosophy offers a course, cross-listed in Women’s Studies - Gender Issues (WS 222/PHIL 202) - that asks students to consider some of the deepest theoretical and practical questions about sex and gender.
