Activism is a very important focus within our Department, and some courses have a required element of community engagement to demonstrate how to produce systems of greater equality. This may include working with women with various lived experiences, the underprivileged, and/or community organizations and advocacy groups such as the Thunder Bay Shelter House.

Paid undergraduate research opportunities within the Department of Women’s Studies are available through hiring competitions in both third and fourth year. Many of our students have gone on to publish papers and attend conferences. For more information please contact the Department of Women’s Studies at 343-8625 or speak to a faculty member directly.

We work to integrate professionalization opportunities for all of our undergraduate students. We aim to equip our graduates with the knowledge to facilitate equality and to succeed at applying that knowledge in a professional manner and environment.
