General Information Go to top of document
Administrative Assistant Elizabeth Wasylowich 905-688-5550, extension 4330 Mackenzie Chown D 411 Women's and Gender Studies is an interdisciplinary field of study distinguished by its focus on the experiences of a range of different women, - past and present - and analyses of gender. Women's and Gender Studies courses invite both male and female students to explore the interplay of gender and power, with careful attention to the intersections of race, class, sexuality, colonialism and imperialism. Women's and Gender Studies students engage with women's texts and cultural artifacts, examine national and international gender politics and activism, experience innovative teaching, and develop skills in feminist theory and research methods. Students of Women's and Gender Studies are well equipped to bring a critical analysis to a range of careers including those in education, business and management, law, health, government and social services. The Women's and Gender Studies program aims to provide a supportive and intellectually challenging environment to women in the university and it maintains active links to women's organizations in the community. The Centre for Women's and Gender Studies is dedicated to the memory of the fourteen women students whose deaths in 1989 at the École Polytechnique dramatized the need for a greater understanding of systemic and structural violence against women both locally and globally.  
Social Service Worker-Sheridan College Go to top of document
The Social Service Worker Program involves courses offered through Brock University and Sheridan College of Applied Arts and Technology. This four-year program combines training in a variety of applied social service settings at Sheridan College with an Honours BA Women's and Gender Studies at Brock. Students can obtain both solid applied skills and a strong theoretical foundation in a variety of aspects of social services. The program leads to career opportunities in a wide variety of areas including youth worker, assistants for developmentally challenged individuals, counsellor in a variety of group home and mental health settings, and acting as an advocate or counsellor in crisis centres or centres for women. Obtaining both an Honours BA Women's and Gender Studies and a college diploma would ordinarily involve at least five years of study, but this Brock-Sheridan articulation agreement program combines the two in a single integrated package that can be completed in four years. Applicants must have a minimum 70 percent overall average to be considered for admission to the program. Volunteering experience and attainment of the Brock Leadership Skills Certificate programs are considered assets. Successful applicants must maintain a minimum 70 percent overall average during Year 2 and meet other program requirements to continue in the program. Enrolment in this program is limited. Admission to the program is not guaranteed by attainment of the minimum requirements. Application forms and further details concerning the Social Service Worker program are available at brocku.ca/social-sciences/collaborative-programs
