Welcome to Women & Gender Studies!


Women & Gender Studies is an interdisciplinary program dedicated to exploring women’s experience through their roles, contributions and scholarship. As such, the program studies the diverse representations of women within the contexts of ethnicity, class, sexual orientation and gender.

In the Women and Gender Studies Program, students are encouraged to critically think about women’s place in contemporary society while discovering the lost contents of women’s contributions in the past. Women and Gender Studies prepares students for employment and for graduate work through a variety of interdisciplinary courses from the Colleges of Arts & Humanities, Business & Economics, Health Professions and Social & Behavioral Sciences.

We are proud of our interdisciplinary program and of our diverse faculty. These are faculty who have helped in the creation and restructuring of our program courses. Many are faculty who are recognized scholars in their fields.
