This program is designed for students who wish to study and develop expertise in an equity framework for education. The program conceptualizes education broadly as a concept that includes schooling, but also includes other social forces that shape knowledge in society. From this perspective, equity in education refers to the range of interdisciplinary, theoretical perspectives from which the relationships between these forces are studied including: critical social justice; anti-racism education; critical Indigenous education; critical race feminisms; critical literacies; queer/ LGBT studies; human rights education; whiteness studies; globalization; and postcolonial and neocolonial thought.
