The one-year Gender Studies MA program trains students in critical race, gender, and sexuality studies and social justice. Gender Studies at Queen’s distinctively foregrounds critical race conceptual frameworks at all levels of our undergraduate and graduate degree programs. Students examine gender, our key category of analysis, in terms of its interdependence with race, class, nation, sexuality, disability, age, religion, colonialism and globalization. Students conduct research in Canada and internationally and articulate their scholarship with local and global action for social justice. Students produce scholarship that is directly applicable to work for social change and to a wide variety of academic and nonacademic careers. Full-time students take seven courses -- two (3.0 credit) required courses, four (3.0 credit) elective courses, and one (0.0 credit) Proseminar course in fall and winter semesters -- and complete a Major Research Paper (50 pages) during spring and summer. The elective courses may be selected from Gender Studies graduate courses (including GNDS 850/3.0, a practicum option), graduate courses in other departments, and independently organized directed readings.
