About

Students at Saint Thomas University  explore the idea that identity is constructed through interplay of individuals and social groups and institutions— the family, peers, cultural and religious groups, the media, etc. Women's Studies and Gender Studies Courses enable students to learn about the dynamic nature of gender roles and norms, sexism, and power relations.

Overview

A range of gender equity issues are now recognized as public policy issues, including gender-based violence, bullying, and workplace equity. Whether the focus is social justice, gender studies, or world cultures, the core issues include the social construction of identity, the nature and impact of power relations and diversity, and the role of personal engagement and social action.

Learning outcomes

Women's Studies and Gender Studies students at Saint Thomas University benefit from the analytical and communication skills developed in the women’s rights and men’s movements for social change. Analytical and communication skills apply to work environments where social policy is addressed and social science or humanities research skills are required, such as in social work, law, government research, e.g., Statistics Canada, and especially in educational counselling, and teaching. With the need for greater awareness around sexual harassment/abuse in workplaces and schools, including cyber-intimidation, the critical self-examination this field engenders is a central skill that managers and administrators are required to develop.

Graduates from this program are prepared for professional jobs in education, social work, law, and management pertaining to an individual’s right to live, work, and study in an environment free of intimidation, discrimination, or harm. Post-secondary education and research is also a popular path for graduates. Even software companies hire graduates with these backgrounds to prepare modules in education, management, and government that reflect current issues and research.
