DEVELOP CRITICAL THINKING SKILLS THAT EMPLOYERS VALUE

A BA in Women’s and Gender Studies will shape the way you look at the world, whether you decide to start your career, or go on to graduate studies.

Our Women’s and Gender Studies program emphasizes gender (femininities and masculinities) while including other categories of analysis such as race, class, and sexuality. By reexamining history, literature, and other disciplines, from a feminist and/or queer perspective, this program seeks to understand sex roles and stereotypes of women and men in past and contemporary societies, women’s special concerns, and the representation of gender and sexuality in the arts and humanities.

Graduates find job opportunities in a variety of fields, including government, communications and media, law, human services, research, international relations, public health, and other career fields.
