Gender Studies


Explore the ways in which ideas about gender and sexuality shape social roles, laws, institutions and creative work in the U.S. and across the globe. Analyze how race, class and ethnic diversity intersect with gender and sexuality and influence the ideas, practices and hierarchies that surround them.

The gender studies program can help you understand and analyze myriad issues affecting equality, sexuality, class, race and overall identity, and how these factors can shape professional, family and community roles. Courses are available in a number of departments in the arts, humanities and social sciences, including history, political science, English, communications, psychology and sociology.
