Women and Gender Studies at Central Michigan University 

​Gender identity organizes our lives, defining the roles we are expected to fulfill and who we are expected to become at home and in the workplace. Built around a commitment to social justice, our program offers students the opportunity to examine intersections of gender, sexuality, ethnicity, race, class, and nationality, and to design a career path that combines knowledge of oppression and social inequality with valuable critical thinking, advocacy, communication, and problem solving skills.
