Why Women's and Gender Studies?

What will be the impact of the #MetToo movement on US society? What comes next? Fascinated by these questions? You're in the right place. Our Women’s and Gender Studies program provides you with the opportunity to study the history of women and gender, through modern cultural lenses, while relying on research methodology and theoretical scholarship. The major is small, meaning you'll learn in an intimate setting, with meaningful discussion alongside your professors and peers. The faculty are not only insightful in the classroom, but also nurturing outside of it. They're involved with student clubs on campus, and are always available for career assistance or guidance.

AREAS OF STUDY:
  • Feminist Theory
  • Histories of Feminism
  • Feminist Theories in Context
  • Topics in Global Feminism
