Gender and Women's Studies
Discover the intersections of gender, race, class, age, ability and sexuality in popular culture, everyday life, the arts, the sciences, politics, societies, and the economy.
The Gender and Women’s Studies program explores relations of power in the lives of individuals, groups and cultures in multiple settings and sites locally and transnationally. Our challenging courses on women and gender analyze constructions and intersections of gender, race, class, age, ability and sexuality in popular culture, everyday life, the arts, the sciences, politics, societies and the economy. We encourage students to engage individually and collectively in the transformative processes of feminist scholarship, practices and politics. Gender and Women’s Studies students develop the practical, theoretical, communications and organization skills to think, write, conduct research and act critically and creatively.
