Description:The MA Program in Gender and Social Justice Studies is committed to intersectional analysis of social justice, and we take interdisciplinary approaches to understanding the political, aesthetic, and ethical questions that arise from the study of gender and social justice. Students will develop the skills necessary to produce independent scholarly analysis, research, and action aimed at social justice and the reduction of social inequalities.

The MA in GSJ is a 12-month (course-based) or 24-month (thesis-based) program in which students participate in Praxis and Research seminars, and complete elective courses in WGS and other related disciplines. Course-based MA students produce a portfolio structured around their unique professional and scholarly goals. Thesis-based MA students produce a graduate thesis under the direction of a professor in our program or otherwise affiliated with the department.
