About Gender Studies

Fields of study in the Gender Studies program include Art History, Criminal Justice, Economics, English, History, Legal Studies, Music, Philosophy, Political Science, Psychology, and Sociology. These courses are broadly formulated to examine how gender inequality affects the lives of both men and women and how social constructions of gender shape our lives. These courses examine the contributions that research on gender and feminist scholarship have made to our understanding of social institutions, human behavior, cultural expression and intellectual inquiry.

Students who minor in Gender Studies will develop their critical thinking and communication skills as they explore this exciting field by bringing together concepts from a variety of academic disciplines.
