REQUEST FORM TO GET YOUR WOMEN'S STUDIES MAJOR CERTIFICATE


WHAT IS WOMEN'S STUDIES?

Women's Studies courses provide an understanding of gender issues relevant to daily life and to career options in the 21st century. The courses consist of offerings in various disciplines as well as unique team-taught interdisciplinary courses.

These courses focus on describing and critically analyzing the position of women in society: their history and work, their myths and realities, their minds and bodies, their culture and future possibilities.
In addition to academic courses, the Women's Studies Program offers a variety of activities designed to involve and inform people in the Vanier Community about issues important to women. Symposia, discussion sessions, and exhibitions on a range of issues are held every year.
 

WHAT OPTIONS ARE AVAILABLE IN WOMEN'S STUDIES?

Students in all programs have the option of taking a single course, a series of courses, or a Major in Women's Studies.

WHAT IS A MAJOR IN WOMEN'S STUDIES?

A Major consists of completing five (5) of the following courses: at least 2 must be from Group A; the other 3 may be from Group A, B or C. It is also possible to take regular courses and focus on women in assignments. Teachers willing to make this arrangement are listed in Group C. This allows students in any program to complete the Major using core and complementary courses. To obtain the Women's Studies Major Certificate, you must submit an application form to the Coordinator before you graduate.

N.B. Students who require specific courses to complete their Major should obtain an essential course change form from the Women's Studies Coordinator: Maureen Jones, phone 514-744-7500, extension 7185, office N546.
