The Department of Women and Gender Studies offers a Master of Arts degree program that focuses on women, gender and feminism in transnational and multicultural contexts, preparing students to engage critically with analytical categories such as gender, race, sexuality, nation, class, labor and able-bodiedness. Students study how bodies, families, communities and nations are gendered in specific cultural and historical locations and investigate connections to their own lives, roles and contributions.
The expertise of the department lies in intersectional, and transnational studies of inequality, preparing students to engage critically with analytical categories such as gender race, sexuality, nation, class, labor and embodiment.
Courses consider global structures of power and histories of racism in relation to local, regional, national and transnational feminist practices. The department provides analysis and debate of activist scholarship by feminists who confront and transform various institutions and arenas, including education, politics, law, media and arts, sexuality, nonprofit groups, global nongovernmental organizations, communities, labor struggles and cultural productions.
The program is interdisciplinary, enabling students to combine core and elective courses in Women and Gender Studies with electives in other departments and programs across the campus. The department also supports graduate student teaching and research positions, as well as community internships. Students complete their Master’s degree with a culminating project of their own design working closely an advisor.
