GSFS Courses Offered in 2020-21

The  Gender, Sexuality, Feminist, and Social Justice Studies (GSFS) program  is a diverse and interdisciplinary program that recognizes social justice as a driving concept inherent to the study of gender, sexuality, and feminism. Social Justice frameworks incorporate critical race studies, disability studies, and Indigenous studies into the examination of gender, sexuality, and feminism.  

The table gives an overview of all GSFS courses offered in 2020-2021. More detailed course descriptions can be found here. In addition to the GSFS courses offered by the Institute, students will be able to take courses from a list of complementary offerings from departments throughout the Faculty of Arts.

*All GSFS courses will be taught remotely for Fall 2020. GSFS course overviews and remote delivery guides are posted below.
