About Women's Studies

About Women's Studies

Women's Studies is an interdisciplinary program that brings to light contemporary and historical critical issues centred on women, gender and/or feminism. The program provides students with opportunities to explore the meanings and intersections of such categories as gender, 'race', class, sexual orientation, age, ability, citizenship, and national identity for example, and to examine how such categories might inform and reproduce power relationships.

Students must see an advisor in Women's Studies at a minimum upon registering in WMST and prior to selecting courses for the final year of study.

For further information concerning courses, please consult the IGSF Teaching Programs Handbook available from the IGSF or online at www.mcgill.ca/igsf. The most up-to-date information concerning courses will be on the website.
