Why Choose This Program?

Graduates of SJES transition to a broad range of opportunities, including various PhD programs. The MA in SJES provides a transitional opportunity for students to move from one undergraduate discipline, through our MA program, and then into a different discipline for their PhD.

Research at Brock
The SJES program unites scholars from distinct academic disciplines to provide an exciting breadth and diversity of perspectives. The program is made up of participating faculty from Child and Youth Studies, Communications, Popular Culture and Film Studies, Community Health Sciences, Dramatic Arts, Education, English Language and Literature, Geography, History, Labour Studies, Political Science, Recreation and Leisure Studies, Sociology, Visual Arts, and Women's and Gender Studies.
Students and faculty belong to a multitude of social movement and community organizations in the Niagara Region and beyond. As a program, we have close ties to Brock’s new Social Justice Research Institute, a hub of social justice research.
