Women’s & Gender Studies Department

Concepts of gender, race, class and sexuality shape our lives. Learn to see the world, and your place in it, more completely.

Why study women's and gender studies at CapU?

Women's and Gender Studies provides a special space and focus for women's knowledge and experience. Expect an experience that will inform you, challenge you, and connect you with others working to create a better world.

Our courses and programs are open to all, and male students are welcome. It's a fascinating opportunity to learn about women's perspectives and consider social constructs of masculinity and femininity.

Students can specialize in Women's and Gender Studies or take the department's courses to supplement other specializations. Students may go on to careers in advocacy, research, social work and counselling.
