Cultural Studies is Queen's flagship interdisciplinary graduate program in the humanities and social sciences. The 2 year MA program and 4 year PhD program bring together 100 students and over 90 faculty and postdocs from across the arts, humanities, and social sciences. The program is committed to interdisciplinary research, social justice and community engagement.
Cultural Studies draws on a range of methods and critical theories and empowers researchers to break down conventional divisions not only among academic disciplines but also between academia and activism, and between theoretical critique and cultural production. In this way we bring together researchers focused on areas and fields, rather than disciplines and traditions.
Gifts to the Cultural Studies Program Trust will be used to enhance the learning experience of our students through academic and cultural activities that provide ongoing meaningful engagement with cultural issues relevant to local and global communities.
