Women’s and Gender Studies is an interdisciplinary program that encourages the development of critical perspectives in both intellectual and activist contexts. Women’s and Gender Studies teaches students to re-examine traditional beliefs and to recognize that gender, race, class, ethnicity, age, sexuality, and nationality are crucial aspects of identity and can be understood primarily in their intersections. The program offers a Major, a Minor, an Honors track, and a Graduate Certificate.
