Gender & Women's Studies / Études des femmes et de genre


Gender & Women’s Studies examines issues in people’s lives from multiple perspectives, with particular attention to how race, ethnicity, class and sexual orientation have defined their experiences.

Our program offers the added option of taking courses offered at the Keele campus or on international exchange. 

Progressive opportunities for hands-on experience

Our campus is an incredibly inclusive environment with a campus community that’s passionate about social justice. Whether you’re interested in feminist movements, activism, advocacy, health care, the LGBTQ community or other areas, you’ll be able to apply your learning through involvement in campus organizations including the Women and Trans Centre, the Centre for Human Rights at our Keele campus and more.

Le programme d’Études des femmes et de genre explore des questions liées à la vie des femmes à partir de nombreuses perspectives et se penche sur les effets de la race, de l’origine ethnique, de la classe et de l’orientation sexuelle sur le vécu des femmes.

Notre programme vous permet de suivre des cours sur le campus Keele ou de participer à un échange international.

Des possibilités d’expérience pratique

Notre campus offre un environnement très inclusif et accueille une communauté passionnée par la justice sociale. Que les mouvements féministes, le militantisme, la santé, la communauté LGBTQ ou d’autres domaines vous intéressent, vous aurez l’occasion de mettre en pratique vos connaissances en participant aux activités d’organisations comme le Centre des femmes et des trans sur notre campus, et le « Centre for Human Rights » sur le campus Keele.
