Women's & Gender Studies

Welcome to Women's and Gender Studies

Women's and Gender Studies is an interdisciplinary major exploring the creation, meaning and perpetuation of gender in human societies, both past and present. The major seeks to provide opportunities for developing the knowledge, abilities, appreciation and motivations which are liberating for men and women. It is also an inquiry into women's material, cultural and economic production, their collective undertakings and self-descriptions.
