Minor in Women's and Gender Studies
Women’s and Gender Studies integrates theory and practice with the aim of transforming social relations, representations, knowledges, institutions and policies. Through interdisciplinary and comparative approaches, students engage in the study of gender intersectionally and transnationally as a means of understanding the complex ways that ideas and practices about gender, past and present, shape the world around us. Issues of justice, social and economic transformation, and women's agency are central and at each level of study the curriculum emphasizes race, ethnicity, nationality, class, age, sexuality and different abilities as categories of analysis.
