Apply Your Learning
Make the most out of your university career by taking advantage of all that Laurier has to offer you. Volunteer work, campus clubs, leadership programs, studying abroad, work experience – there are so many ways you can extend your classroom experience into the real world.
Here are just a few examples of the experiences you can add to your Women and Gender Studies program:
- Study abroad for an academic term to become immersed in another culture.
- Take a course that offers a Community Service-Learning (CSL) placement and engage with the local community while earning course credit.
- Join student clubs such as the Women and Gender Studies Student Association, Not My Laurier: Golden Hawks Combating Gender Violence, Because I am a Girl (BIG), HER Campus or a special interest club, and meet fellow students who share your passions and interests.
- Combine your Women and Gender Studies program with another program, like Communication Studies or Sociology, and apply for co-op at the end of your first year.
