Why study Philosophy?
Learn how to think, discuss and write about abstract ideas. Discover how philosophy contributes to disciplines as diverse as sociology and computer science. You'll develop skills that lead to success in a wide range of graduate studies, and beyond.
Why Gender and Sexuality Studies?
The interdisciplinary Gender and Sexuality Studies (GSXS) program (formerly Women’s Studies WMST) focuses on issues of gender and sexuality, as well as race, class, disability, citizenship/documentation, age, and environmental issues. The program is defined by intersectional feminism and is global in scope. Issues of equity, diversity, and inclusion feature in all GSXS courses. GSXS instructors are committed to collaborative and participatory classrooms, decolonial learning, and a human rights agenda.
The supportive and welcoming attitudes of the members of the Philosophy Department at the University of Calgary fostered a collaborative environment that allowed me to thrive personally and academically.
