Gender & Women’s Studies
|Think! Critique! Act! Create! Transform! These are skills and practices that we encourage in our challenging, interdisciplinary courses on women and gender. Our dedicated, award-winning professors provide excellent learning environments at all levels of study. Courses explore relations of power in the lives of individuals, groups and cultures in multiple settings and sites locally and transnationally.|
They analyze constructions and intersections of gender, race, class, age, ability and sexuality in daily life, popular culture, the fine arts, sciences, politics, society and the economy. They encourage students to develop the practical, theoretical, communications and organization skills to think, research, write, and act critically and creatively.
The critical research, writing, thinking and listening skills taught in our classes will help you develop skills that you can use in life and apply to any future career you may choose.
