Combined Degree - Bachelor of Business Administration (Honours) & Bachelor of Arts (Honours) - Global Gender Studies (EO) at Western University : Tuition Fee: $33,526.00 CAD / Year (Scholarship Available)

Unlike traditional business schools that expect students to choose a specialization early on, the 2+2 program structure of the Ivey Honours of Business Administration (HBA) offers students the freedom to explore their academic interests before choosing their career options. In the first two years, students can study in any faculty or program. This opportunity to gain new life experiences ensures that HBA students and their classmates bring diverse and more seasoned perspectives to their business education. The combination of a deep knowledge of business and another academic or professional field makes for a strong career foundation. Students can apply their first two years of university study at Western to two degrees.

Students in this program will have the option to complete a four year Honours Bachelor of Business Administration or to complete a combined degree with an Honours Bachelor of Business Administration (HBA) or to study for five years and combine the HBA with an Honours Bachelor of Arts. While in their first year at Ivey (HBA 1), students will apply for one of the combined degree programs. If admitted, they will spend their fourth and fifth years of university studying a combination of business courses and required courses in their second degree area. In five years, they will have completed two degrees.

An interdisciplinary and dynamic field, Women’s Studies has undergone impressive expansion in recent decades. In the Department of Women’s Studies and Feminist Research, students study women, gender, and sexuality in terms of cultural norms and their implications for people’s lives and for social justice. Western approaches these topics with a feminist lens and from perspectives emerging from the interlinked fields of feminist, queer, trans and critical race theory. Western explores how gender intersects with other axes of identity such as race, ethnicity, socio-economic status, (dis)ability, age, and more.

This department’s expertise encapsulates a wide array of interdisciplinary strengths across feminist theory and various feminist approaches to health studies, media studies, history, globalization and development studies, law, philosophy, writing studies and literature, and film and visual culture, as well as significant work in queer theory and sexuality studies. It is one of only a few units across the university recognized as a department in both the Faculty of Arts and Humanities and the Faculty of Social Science. Further, it has a rich network of Affiliate faculty members appointed in many other departments across Western who are integral members of our learning community. This department promotes feminist scholarship through provision for resident scholars, a distinguished Speakers Series, faculty colloquia, annual conferences (including Flaunting It!, our undergraduate conference on gender and sexuality).

Western also has an active and lively Women’s Studies Students’ Collective which organizes talks, performances, and social events and annually publishes selected undergraduate essays and creative work in their journal Tulips.

With a focus on learning through debate, inquiry, and critical reflection and analysis, WSFR invites students to discover and critique feminist interventions in traditional modes of knowing and to generate their own methods of discernment within the extensive areas of women, gender, sexuality, and diversity.

The major in Sexuality Studies is an interdisciplinary intra-faculty module in the Faculty of Arts and Humanities administered by the Department of Women's Studies and Feminist Research.
