MtA, NOSM U announce updates to program names

Mount Allison University and NOSM University have each announced updates to program names. MtA’s Women’s and Gender Studies program will now be known as Feminist and Gender Studies. This change reflects the field’s move away from binary conceptions of gender while still recognizing gender as a site of oppression, explains MTA. NOSM U’s Northern Ontario Dietetic Internship Program has been renamed the Northern Ontario School of Medicine University Dietetic Practicum Program. The name change aligns with Ontario legislation changes regarding paid internships and addresses redundancy in the name. The name change will come into effect in Fall 2024, with the incoming cohort being the first to graduate under the new name.
