Major in Women and Gender Studies
Women and Gender Studies examines the importance of gender and feminism in relation to issues such as race, class, sexuality, labor, colonialism, multiculturalism and globalization. Students study how bodies, families, communities, and nations are gendered in specific cultural, political, and historical locations, and investigate connections to their own lives, roles, and contributions.Learn More about Major in Women and Gender Studies
