The MA in Social Justice and Equity Studies is an innovative and interdisciplinary program designed to address the increasing need for individuals trained in the expanding field of social justice and equity scholarship. The program is highly individualized, offering advanced coursework and academic mentoring to prepare students to conduct research on issues related to social justice and equity. The field of social justice studies is interdisciplinary, diverse, and pluralistic, drawing from various theoretical traditions, methods, and approaches.

The program at Brock University seeks to enact an emancipatory politics of knowledge that amplifies voices and perspectives historically marginalized and actively resisting domination. The curriculum is linked to ethicopolitical movements for progressive social change and reflects a commitment to the links between power and knowledge in the university.

The program has a diverse and highly qualified faculty, numbering over 50 members from 16 academic departments at Brock University. The program admits 10 to 12 domestic students and one to two international students each year, reflecting a commitment to excellence and diversity.
