Gender Studies


Gender Studies examines the significance of social constructions of sex, gender, and sexuality as they structure the meaning of personal identity and social institutions like work, family, medicine, and the law. The Gender Studies minor is an interdisciplinary program that allows students to choose from a number of different disciplines and topics to meet their individual interests while also acquiring a breadth of knowledge about how gender and sexuality are explored across multiple academic fields. Gender Studies courses seek to enhance the integration of knowledge about gender and the social institutions that help to structure it beyond the classroom to one’s public and personal life.
