About the IGDS and Gender Studies with Dr Gabrielle Hosein






Undergraduate Studies with Dr Sue Ann Barratt













"When I took IGDS courses at UWI, my experience was enhanced. Coming from a society where many misconceptions exist, being able to get to the heart of common social issues and gain better knowledge was enlightening."
BSc student
Criminology and Criminal Justice


"Gender studies not only taught me how gender impacts every single aspect of our lives but it gave me the necessary tools that I need, to critique and understand oppressive power relations as well as to examine social injustices and work towards creating effective change within society."


"As a migrant, I came in here and I was welcomed off the bat. I was included in projects. I was asked for my different interest levels. They worked around that to really ensure that I had a holistic experience. What the Institute does is, it caters to your needs, as a student."


"During my time at UWI, I learned new skills, learned valuable life lessons, and made new friends. Through the IGDS, my commitment to gender equality was reaffirmed, and my activism abilities were honed. As an IGDS postgrad student, I've been given opportunities. It's an honor to be able to carry on a rich tradition of Caribbean feminist scholarship and action."  


"When I took IGDS courses at UWI, my experience was enhanced. Coming from a society where many misconceptions are frequent, being able to get to the heart of common societal issues and gain a better knowledge was enlightening. "Don't be afraid to fight for what you believe in, even if it means doing it alone.” BSc Criminology and Criminal Justice, Class of 2020
