About

The Master's Program in Gender, Sexuality, and Women's Studies offered by Simon Fraser University  is interdisciplinary and draws on the resources of faculty in many areas of the Arts and Sciences.

Overview

Qualified students will be accepted into the MA thesis program at Simon Fraser University only if, in the opinion of the Gender, Sexuality, and Women's Studies Graduate Committee, a suitable Senior Supervisor is available. Senior Supervisors will be selected only from among Gender, Sexuality, and Women's Studies faculty members, faculty members who have joint appointments in Gender, Sexuality, and Women's Studies and another department, and Gender, Sexuality, and Women's Studies Associate Faculty.

A student with incomplete academic preparation for the MA program may be required to take up to 12 hours of additional work in the Gender, Sexuality, and Women's Studies undergraduate program. The Graduate Committee will specify these requirements to the incoming student.

 It is therefore possible for the Master's student to create, in co-operation with the Gender, Sexuality, and Women's Studies Graduate Committee, an individualized program of studies to suit her/his scholarly interests and goals.

Vision Statement

The vision of the Department of Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s Studies is to bring feminist, queer, and intersectional understandings to the analysis of power and how it operates locally and transnationally. We continue to build an interdisciplinary environment that nurtures and promotes critical research and scholarship, engaged teaching, and meaningful community service. We are committed to cultivating innovation, intellectual freedom, social justice activism, diversity, and transformative resistance to inequality.
