MA IN SOCIAL JUSTICE STUDIES

Located within the territories of the Anishinaabe peoples, Lakehead University is launching a new and exciting MA in Social Justice Studies. It is an interdisciplinary graduate program housed in the Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities and delivers a transformative education by asking students to think critically about the values, cultural assumptions, and actions that maintain the current economic, political, and social structures which shape our day-to-day lives. Our program empowers students with the practical skills and theoretical knowledges necessary to challenge the informal and formal configurations of power and oppression within local, national, and global contexts.

The flexibility of the program allows students to take courses with and be supervised by dynamic faculty from across the Social Sciences and Humanities. Our faculty come from a broad range of disciplinary specialties (including Indigenous Learning, Women's Studies, Visual Arts, Sociology, Education, Music, English, etc) are committed to positive political, social, and economic change, participate in community-based research, and are dedicated to fostering an environment of political engagement with those issues relevant to social justice.

The following Graduate Social Justice Studies programs are offered:
Each program is marked with a TB, O or W designation to distinguish where each program is available.
(TB = Thunder Bay campus, O = Orillia campus, W = online)
