Gender Studies seeks to balance theory and activism, the personal and the political, the local and the global, and the classroom and the community.

The Gender Studies Program specifically emphasizes:

  • Providing students with the theoretical and methodological tools to analyze gender within their chosen disciplines.
  • Providing a learner-centered education in which critical thinking, student involvement, and personal insight are encouraged and made relevant to the learning process.
  • Empowering students to critically and creatively apply an analysis of gender to their personal, family, educational, professional, and civic roles.
  • Providing innovative and collaborative study, teaching, and service that promote new knowledge and socially responsible interactions with the world.

The Gender Studies Program is inclusive and welcomes students from all academic disciplines.

We invite you to consider a major, minor, or certificate in Gender Studies. The certificate may be acquired as a stand-alone academic achievement or may accompany another degree.
