Program Description:

Gender Studies at UC is an interdisciplinary programme taught by staff from various Schools and Departments in the College of Arts. Gender Studies strongly supports the idea that how students learn is as important as what they learn, and is committed to the practice of feminist pedagogy. In practical terms, this means that Gender Studies courses are engaged in student-centred learning, including an emphasis on group learning projects, student presentations, and student-driven research questions. With these broad kinds of experience, Gender Studies students are exposed to a variety of ways of learning, in addition to becoming familiar with the subject matter of the discipline.

Please note that international students only pay domestic fees for study at PhD level.
