GSFS Joint Honours

The GSFS Joint Honours program offers a significant degree of analysis and depth of study into contemporary and historical critical issues centered on gender, sexuality, feminist, and social justice beyond that of the Major through required and complementary course work, intensive research, and seminars. It enables students to explore the meanings of such categories as gender, race, class, sexual identification, age, ability, citizenship, and national identity, for example, and to examine how such categories might inform, reproduce and challenge existing power relationships. The Joint Honours  program culminates in the completion of an Honours thesis, supervised by a faculty member whose approval is sought the year prior. The Colloquium requires supplemental reading and writing assignments, training in research and thesis writing methods, presentation to the group of theses in progress, and response to the work of others. Joint Honours students must maintain a program GPA of 3.30 and a CGPA of 3.00.

In order to meet the requirements for the Joint Honours in GSFS, students are required to take a total of 36 credits, divided as follows:
