Gender Studies

The Gender Studies Program takes an interdisciplinary approach to teaching and learning, with courses in numerous departments: English, EGEO, Psychology, History, and Political Science, among others.   Relevant to all majors, a minor in Gender Studies prepares students both to interact in a diverse and increasingly global professional world and to understand how our embodied experiences, while personal and individual, are also culturally shaped.    In Gender Studies courses, students analyze power structures, gender identities, and culture to promote social change.
