Gender Studies

The Gender Studies Program offers an interdisciplinary course of study that examines gender and sexuality from social, cultural, and biological perspectives. The program is founded on close collaboration between academic departments, enabling students and faculty to utilize the perspectives and methodologies of gender and women’s studies across traditional disciplines.

All students should attend this interactive and engaging program especially for college students on sexual communication and date rape.

Department Highlights

  • This major equips students for social change, while giving them the tools to work for social justice.
  • Our faculty prepares students to work with difference. The world we live in requires us to work and live in community with people different from ourselves. Our students are taught how to embrace difference, use it as a benefit, and help others do the same.
  • The Gender Studies department is interculturally focused. Our faculty come from diverse backgrounds, we offer three different study abroad programs, and our courses study gender in different social and cultural contexts.
