Women’s and gender studies provides students an coherent, but flexible, program of study examining scholarship and theory on the history, status, contributions, and experiences of women and men in diverse cultural communities. The interdisciplinary perspective of the field expands our intellectual vision and our capacity to resolve problems. The women’s and gender studies major and minor enable students to analyze how gender, in its dynamic interrelationship with race and class and sexuality, has shaped and given meaning to people’s lives. With opportunities to present original research, internships, and hands-on mentoring, the program is designed to prepare students for immediate entry into the workplace or to pursue graduate studies at the master’s or doctoral level.
