Gender Studies

The Gender Studies minor explores the many ways that ideas about gender increase our knowledge of the world and our experience of everyday life.

The gender studies minor and concentration at UMass Lowell introduce students to an intersectional analysis of gender, sexuality, and identity. Gender studies emphasizes both gender and feminist theory as well as the role of gender in more applied areas, such as social relations, power, history, and politics.
