Women’s and gender studies is an interdisciplinary program that studies social, cultural, economic, and political power using gender as a central focus.

The Women’s and Gender Studies program at Mount Allison teaches with a focus on anti-racism, feminist theory, queer and trans studies, and social justice.

The women’s and gender studies program includes several core courses that provide an introduction to the principles of women’s and gender studies as well as more advanced study of approaches to feminism.

In upper years you will focus on issues of gender, identity, and culture; theories of gender and power in society; gender, science, and research; and contemporary issues in feminism and gender studies.
