MESSAGE FROM THE DEPARTMENT HEAD

Susan Frohlick

Welcome to the Department of Community, Culture and Global Studies.

We offer undergraduate courses and degrees in four programs: Anthropology, Gender and Women’s Studies, Geography, and Indigenous Studies. Experiential learning, Indigenous knowledge and reconciliation in Canada, local as well as international fieldtrips, and transformative education are some of the student experiences you can expect from us. We engage our students in current issues and help them to better understand the complexity of today’s world.

Our programs prepare students at undergraduate and graduate levels for a wide range of careers, including research, non-governmental organizations, community and international development, inter-cultural communication, visual and digital arts, and much more. We value interdisciplinarity. Our faculty supervise Master’s and PhDs in the Interdisciplinary Graduate Program, in themes that include community-based research, global studies, digital humanities, sustainability, and urban and regional studies.

I am very proud of our diverse and dynamic department, faculty, staff, and students. We invite you to become part of our community.

WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT

UBC Okanagan offers a world-class, globally recognized degree at a smaller and more intimate campus.

Students can generally expect smaller class sizes and greater access to their professors, while gaining the opportunity to participate in cutting-edge research and projects.

Community, Culture and Global Studies is a unique department within UBC and across Canada. We are multi-disciplinary and interdisciplinary, and with many new faculty we are vibrant and forward-looking.
