Below, you will find lists of the CGS courses offered last year and this current year, as well as lists of anticipated CGS course offerings for the next few years. As you will see, many of the core CGS courses are offered annually, but most of our problem-oriented and issues-related courses are offered on a rotation basis, every two years.
The Centre for Global Studies ensures that all courses that students will require in any of the degree modules offered in our six academic programs can be accessed within every two-year cycle. And students should plan their course selections each year with that in mind.
CGS courses offer many types of interdisciplinary and critically-oriented forms of study into how our lives are situated in the world and how are lives are fundamentally interrelated with the experiences, concerns, and interests of others near and far. Variously, our courses range from engagements with practical problems of global inequalities and development, the study of social demands of globalised labour, exchange, and migration, and the material conditions of living in the world, through to world-wide politics of decoloniality, gender, displacement, agriculture, and the ideologies and languages through which we represent the world to ourselves. Through courses engaged with these problems and themes, as well as core courses focused on rigorous studies into research ethics, collaborative, participatory, and anti-oppressive methodologies and critical theory, students will be substantially prepared for graduate studies across the social sciences and humanities and professional engagements via law, business, public administration, and social advocacy.
