Brock University has committed over $4,000,000 to our awards programs for 2018-19. International students pursuing undergraduate studies at Brock are eligible to receive awards and are subject to international tuition rates.
Our program is relevant to a variety of careers and will provide you with a unique perspective on the complex ways identity and power relations shape our society. Students in Women's and Gender Studies are invited to develop a critical awareness of how gender, race, indigeneity, class and sexuality intersect and affect cultural expression, human interaction, ecological systems and power relations ? for both men and women.
Our focus is on the transnational feminist exploration of the ways gender intersects with different variables to produce the complexity of women's and men's lived experience. Course work in our program will allow students to explore the ways gendered experience is produced as a culturally variable and historically contingent category.
Our courses are open to students in every faculty. Our instructors are specialists in various traditional disciplines whose research provide a gender analysis. The Women's and Gender Studies Program thus draws upon a rich source of experience and expertise to explore how gender shapes institutions, ideology, language, arts and culture.

In the late 1950s, there was growing public discussion about how Niagara should have its own university. Its residents wanted young people to get a good education without having to leave the area.
The grassroots sentiment became a movement when, in November 1957, the Allanburg Women’s Institute asked the Ontario government to “favourably consider the placing of a university in the Niagara Peninsula.”
Momentum grew. By fall 1962, the Brock Founders Committee was incorporated. It received approval to create a new university, then developed an administrative and academic plan. Then it began raising money.
After years of meetings and fundraising, Brock opened in September 1964. It had 127 students who attended class in a refurbished refrigeration factory at the foot of the Niagara Escarpment in St. Catharines. In 1966, the landmark Schmon Tower was completed, and faculties began moving “up the hill” to the University’s permanent home atop the Niagara Escarpment.
For the next 30 years, Brock sent thousands of graduates on to successful careers. It built a name for its personal quality of teaching afforded by attentive faculty and controlled class sizes. As the new millennium dawned, enrolment soared. Brock transformed from an undergraduate institute to a comprehensive university with flourishing research, graduate and doctoral programs.
The campus steadily expanded to keep pace with the demand for a Brock education. It’s a pattern that continues with the construction of world-class research labs, a landmark fine arts complex and an international centre.
Brock serves its community as a cultural, academic and recreational centre, bringing excellent facilities to the people who created the University all those years ago. We are committed to building our community and to fostering an environment that serves students and neighbours.
