About Gender and Women's Studies

Gender and Women’s Studies (GWS) is an engaging and flexible interdisciplinary program that examines women’s experiences of social and political life as a chronically underrepresented group, investigates the diversity of gender-based human experiences and encourages activism with community organizations working for equality and social justice.

Employers in the private sector, government, and non-governmental organizations hire people who have expertise in gender, sexuality, social justice, equity, and human rights issues.

Students trained in critical analysis are highly valued by employers in education, law, business, health care, labour relations, personnel management, counselling, engineering, politics, and many other fields.
