What students are saying about Global Inequalities and Social Change


My time in the Bachelor of Global and International Studies (BGInS) program has been extremely beneficial for not only my academic growth, but also for making human connections. I have felt extremely well-supported and intellectually challenged both inside and outside of my specialization. My experience gave me the confidence to pursue an Honours Thesis with the Department of Sociology in my final year, which has been a hands-on way to prepare for graduate school or social research positions in the workforce.
