Program Information

School:Vancouver Island University
Faculty:Humanities and Social Sciences
Field of Study:Women's Studies
Description:Women’s Studies at VIU explores the history, thought, and experiences of women from a range of viewpoints using a multidisciplinary approach. It encourages students to look critically at cultural productions, institutions, ideologies, sexuality, and language as ways of examining the historical and contemporary status of women. In addition to gender, specificities of race, class, sexual orientation, age, and disability/ability will be addressed as key elements in developing sound critical theories. Particular attention is paid to the history and experiences of First Nations women, both in courses with a uniquely First Nations focus, as well as in the content of other required courses. The program is grounded in feminist theory and teaching/learning styles, and recognizes the value of a participatory classroom where diverse life experiences are included and recognized.
