Women's and Gender Studies

Women's and Gender Studies is an interdisciplinary academic discipline. A women's and gender studies major and minor present 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 and gender theories and utilize them in understanding and contextualizing past, current, and future cultural interaction. While illuminating the impact of gender 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.
