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.
- Interdisciplinary course of study to understand the ways gender shapes behavior, history, and social and political institutions
- The Women and Gender Studies minor requires 24 hours of coursework
- Student societies and organizations include Spectrum, Sexual Aggression Peer Advocates (SAPA), Transcend, and Organization of Women Leaders (OWLs)
