Description: In Dal’s Gender and Women’s Studies program, you’ll develop a critical understanding of gender as a category of analysis in scholarly enquiry, social dynamics, cultural expression, and belief systems. You’ll also investigate the ways that gender intersects with other variables such as race, class, and cultural difference. By studying both social and ideological forces, you’ll understand why women’s contributions have been “invisible” in the past.

Students can enter a BA with Combined Honours program in Gender and Women’s Studies and a range of other subjects including Biology, Classics, Contemporary Studies, English, Environment, French, History, International Development Studies, Philosophy, Political Science, Psychology, Sociology, Social Anthropology, Sustainability, and Theatre. Students interested in any of these combinations or any other that involves Gender and Women’s Studies and another subject should consult with the Departments concerned.
