Queen's library system has excellent gender studies holdings and continues to
invest in related areas such as feminist studies, queer studies, trans studies,
critical race studies and Indigenous studies, allowing Queen's students and
faculty access to online journals covering all facets of the discipline
alongside building a substantial holding of books and monographs in the field.
Resources for stipends are derived from a combination of Queen’s Graduate Awards (QGA), teaching assistantships (TA-ships) in the department’s undergraduate courses, contributions from research grants and contracts, internal scholarships and awards, and external scholarships and awards. Stipends are typically paid in three equal installments throughout the year.
Students must apply for scholarships awarded by Queen’s University in addition awards from Social Science and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) and the Ontario Graduate Scholarship (OGS).
|Program of Study
Master of Arts (M.A.)
The Master's program will lead to a degree of
Master of Arts in Gender Studies. The M.A. in Gender Studies has been designed
as a one-year program. Full time students are required to take two core courses
( GNDS-801 and GNDS-802) and four elective courses in fall and winter semesters
and to complete a Major Research Paper (GNDS-898) during spring and summer. The Graduate Program also supports limited
admission to a two-year stream structured around a Master's thesis (GNDS-899).
Students admitted to the two-year stream spend the second year researching,
writing and defending the thesis, which must be 75-100 pages and must comply
with the regulations of the School of Graduate Studies at Queen's University.
Part-time student options can be negotiated with
the Graduate Coordinator on a case-by-case basis.
The M.A. in Gender Studies offers a theoretically rigorous immersion in the most current
modes of scholarship and activism in gender studies and cognate fields.
Students examine how culture and social life are structured by relations of
difference and power (such as gender, race, class, nationality, sexuality,
disability, age and religion) and pursue interdisciplinary studies of critical
theories, research methods, writing genres and emancipatory struggles, while
grounding original research in the knowledges offered by each. Students develop
and practice skills in critical thinking, research, writing and speaking while
applying interdisciplinary knowledge to local and global questions and
