Students will incorporate into their study frameworks for thinking about power relations and the ways those relations are shaped and challenged by intersecting constructions of gender, race, class, sexuality, age, ability and nationality.We offer three degree completion options: thesis, project, internship.
The Memorial University of Newfoundland is the only university in Canada to offer degree completion by internship. This is a master degree in Gender Studies. We also offer a graduate diploma program, which offers an opportunity to study gender studies at an advanced level, without committing to a thesis, project, or internship. The graduate diploma is not a degree.
Faculty members in the Department of Gender Studies bring research expertise and interests in a range of fields, including: citizenship and human rights; corporeal feminism; reproductive rights; auto/biography and life writing; postcolonial and transnational feminisms; and First Nations studies.
This interdisciplinary master’s program offers a thriving environment that draws on the expertise of scholars from a wide range of academic disciplines. Interdisciplinary resources in cognate areas are available to all MGS students.
