Graduate students in GNDS 801 class


Welcome to the MA in Gender Studies at Queen’s University! The Graduate Program in Gender Studies offers a one-year MA option. Keeping with our commitment to engaging theoretically rigorous and activist-minded studies of gender, the one-year MA will involve intense course work and a major research paper (as well as practicum option for interested students). In order to facilitate this transition smoothly, all incoming students—including those applying for Fall 2015 admission—will be applying for the one-year MA option. Students who wish to consider a two-year thesis option must apply for this in December of their first year of candidacy.
