The Department of Social Justice Education at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (OISE) offers a program that aims to provide students with a critical understanding of the social, cultural, historical, political, economic, and ethical contexts of education, with a focus on equity and social justice. The department is committed to interdisciplinary studies in education, drawing on diverse intellectual traditions of the humanities and social sciences.
Faculty and students can pursue studies on various topics, including anti-racism, critical race theory, Indigenous studies, aesthetics, media, and communication, feminist and gender studies, cultural and philosophical contexts in education, among others. The department’s vision is to enable students to explore the relationship between education and society and the kinds of knowledge educators need to answer critical questions. The program provides graduate and initial teacher education students with disciplinary background, substantive knowledge, and theoretical language necessary to question important educational theories, practices, and society.
