Equity, Diversity, and Human Rights

Learn to question assumptions about society and take an active role in making the world a better place.


This program prepares students to critically evaluate and develop meaningful action-oriented responses to equity, diversity, and human rights issues.

The program traces the history of EDHR concepts, debates, and the legal system that put them into practice, amplifying the perspectives and lived experiences of equity-deserving groups. It uses collaborative, community-centered approaches and allyship to develop transformative plans of action.

The program draws from a range of disciplines including sociology, anthropology, gerontology, criminology, history, law and justice, political science, and psychology. It prepares students for careers in human resources, law, labour rights advocacy, education, policy analysis, social work, community and advocacy services, and healthcare.

Students can complete the entire program in English or French, or both as a bilingual program.
