Gender Studies & Feminist Research

Gender Studies & Feminist Research at McMaster is an exciting new interdisciplinary program.  We accept students from a wide variety of backgrounds who are interested in the study of gender, sexuality, and feminism.  All our students receive funding, including a teaching assistanship and scholarship money.  Our core course, “Knowledge in Action” includes working with local community organizations.  The research symposium brings internationally, nationally, and locally known scholars and activists to campus for lectures and seminars.  GSFR is a new, dynamic program, with small enough student numbers to ensure that everyone receives personal mentoring.

Come and join us in 2020-21!
