The collaborative program in women's studies at the master's level is designed for students from selected disciplines in arts, education, health sciences, law, social sciences, and counselling and spirituality(Saint Paul University), who have an interest in women's studies. These students are permitted to combine advanced studies in their primary discipline with analyses from a women's studies perspective. The program thus adopts at the graduate level the interdisciplinary structures and approach which have proven effective in undergraduate studies. The degree awarded is a master's degree in the primary discipline with "specialization in Women's Studies".
The following units participate in the collaborative program in women's studies at the master's level: counselling and spirituality (Saint Paul University), criminology, education, English, globalization and international development, history, human kinetics, law, music, nursing, philosophy, political studies, religious studies, Lettres françaises, and sociology (the latter two programs are offered in French only). Please refer to the booklets of the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies for further information on the graduate programs of each of these disciplines.
