The Women’s and Gender Studies (WGS) program at Acadia University emphasizes the importance of gender as a category of critical analysis in areas such as scholarly activity, education, social relationships, cultural expression, and politics. Women’s and Gender Studies is offered as a major and honours in the Faculty of Arts, and students from all faculties can minor in WGS or pursue it as a second major.
There are four core courses, with the rest of the program chosen from cross-listed courses offered in all three faculties on a rotational basis. This means that you will have the opportunity of taking courses from a range of different disciplines, all chosen for their inclusion of themes and issues related to women and/or gender.
