Interdisciplinary (Women's and Gender Studies)

I am Interested in This Major

Women’s and Gender Studies is the interdisciplinary, feminist study of the social, cultural, and historical processes that effect gender human identity. The BA in Interdisciplinary with an emphasis in Women’s and Gender Studies combines a broad range of approaches and methods with innovative classroom experiences and teaching. Students learn to integrate women’s, gender, and/or queer studies with analyses of race, ethnicity, religion, spirituality, nationality, and class, and to think critically and synthetically about the multiple axes of power through which sexual and gendered identities are constructed. Courses encourage students to analyze the world in which they live, in order that they might act to transform it. An emphasis in Women’s and Gender Studies prepares students for many different employment opportunities. Some fields include arts, business, education, healthcare, media, politics, law, social work and social services.
