Women's and Gender Studies
Women’s and Gender Studies is an interdisciplinary academic discipline. A women’s and gender studies major and minor presents students with diverse perspectives for understanding and interpreting the historical and contemporary experiences of women and men in the United States and throughout the world. Students will become familiar with numerous feminist, gender, and sexuality theories and utilize them in understanding and contextualizing varied forms of structural and cultural oppressions, interactions, and solutions. While illuminating the impact of gender and sexuality in daily life, the multiple, diverse perspectives encompassed by women’s and gender studies courses prepare students for the multi-faceted, complex viewpoints they will encounter in graduate study and the workplace.
