Welcome to the MA in Gender Studies at Queen’s University. In Fall 2012 we welcomed the third cohort of MA Candidates into our Program. We now have a total of 13 students in our graduate program. The MA in Gender Studies is a theoretically rigorous, thesis based, 2-year degree.
The overall vision of the MA in Gender Studies is to provide students with excellent research skills through which they critically engage with questions of social difference (race, location, age, class, ethnicity, sexuality and so forth). Courses, discussions, and research projects will thus address complex gendered histories, varying feminist and political knowledges, ongoing emancipatory struggles, and theoretical debate. Students will gain valuable critical thinking, writing and verbal skills, in addition to applying feminist and interdisciplinary knowledges to local-global struggles.
All incoming students are highly encouraged to participate in orientation events organized by the School of Graduate Studies.
