It enables students to explore the meanings and intersections of such categories as gender, race, class, sexual orientation, age, ability, citizenship, and national identity, for example, and to examine how such categories might inform and reproduce power relationships The Honours  program culminates in the completion of an Honours thesis, supervised by a faculty member whose approval is sought the year prior.
