Women's and Gender Studies
The Women and Gender Studies Program supports students to develop as social justice activists in their homes, workplaces and communities. Students develop as writers, speakers, and critical thinkers to apply an intersectional lens to navigate analyses that address gender, race, sexual orientation, ethnicity, class, and physical and mental abilities in personal, local, national, and international contexts.
The Women’s and Gender Studies Program offers interdisciplinary training for examining the complex questions and practices related to women and gender. Students have opportunities to engage in research, creative work and internships as well as campus and community activities. Students are empowered with the knowledge, skills and resources about issues in the area of social justice locally, nationally, and internationally. A minor is available for students that wish to gain these strengths and enlighten their degree path.
