The Women’s and Gender Studies major focuses on gender and the experiences of women as central categories of scholarly inquiry. This interdisciplinary program emphasizes diverse perspectives on both the construction and the experience of femininity and masculinity in society, including the complex interactions of gender, class, ethnicity, sexual orientation, and race. Students learn to appreciate the breadth of human experience and the challenges that all people face as gendered beings.
