Program Description:

If you find yourself discussing the state of social justice in Canada, the plight of racialized groups and ambiguous government policies, you'll have much to gain from York's Multicultural and Indigenous Studies program. You will develop a broad understanding of issues facing a society that is engaged in struggles around racial/ethnic equality.

This cross-disciplinary and highly innovative program is a departure from the tradition of treating anti-racism, ethnic studies and Indigenous studies as completely separate fields of study. You'll be able to choose from a wide range of courses in Diaspora Studies, Indigenous Studies and Globalization & Migration Studies in such areas as:

·         English

·         Geography

·         History

·         Humanities

·         Political Science

·         Social Science

·         Social Work

·         Sociology

·         Women's Studies

This program delves into a critical understanding of the social structures and discourses of power that produce racialization, ethnicization and other forms of social inequality and explores the forces of contemporary globalization, including colonialism, imperialism. You'll gain a solid foundation in the history of Canadian settler-state formation, the general processes by which Indigenous lands are colonized and controlled (nationally and internationally) and knowledge of contemporary Indigenous struggles. You'll also acquire strong analytic skills in social and political policy as well as governmental and private sector initiatives.

This program is designed for students preparing for graduate studies or employment in education, public administration, law and law enforcement, immigration, social work, the health professions, public relations or non-governmental organizations.
