Women's and Gender Studies

Bachelor of Arts

Study the impact of gender and power to create a better tomorrow.

Are you a deep thinker with effective writing skills and a passion for justice? Are you interested in analyzing cultural norms and social change? If so, you may be interested in pursuing a Bachelor of Arts in Women's and Gender Studies.

By using gender as a category of analysis, Women’s and Gender Studies asks new questions and pioneers new research and curricula in a wide variety of disciplines; encourages students to reconsider traditional interpretations of female and male experiences across cultures and throughout time; examines gender, class, ethnicity, sexuality, and race as interlocking categories of experience; places women at the center of inquiry, and makes central the experiences, culture, and achievements of those whose history and perspectives have been most marginalized.

Courses encourage critical thinking, empower students as both learners and teachers, enrich students’ sense of the planet’s diverse heritage, connect knowledge from other college courses, transform students’ personal sense of self in society, and show ways to integrate classroom learning into choices of daily life.
