Women's and Gender Studies Program
Women's and Gender Studies offers you the opportunity to explore and understand the diverse experiences of individuals in culture and society by analyzing how gender intersects with race, class, sexuality, and other identities within systems of power. You also will learn feminist approaches to knowledge, such as the place of personal experience and activism in the formulation of theory. Courses provide you the framework and tools to develop a critical feminist perspective on the world and on your own life, as well as the opportunity to apply this lens through analytical reasoning, creative and expository writing, oral communication, research, and service.
