Gender, Sexuality and Women’s Studies
- Bachelor of Arts
Are you interested in issues related to women, gender, and sexuality — locally and globally? Critical gender studies majors develop an interdisciplinary approach to analyzing, understanding and implementing social changes to help people of all backgrounds, races, classes, abilities, ethnicities, sexualities, nations and cultures.
As a gender, sexuality and women’s studies major, your studies will begin with foundational coursework in history, theory and culture. Following your foundational coursework, your upper division coursework will consist of five core courses designed to provide you with an interdisciplinary knowledge on theory, research and contemporary issues in gender studies. You will also have the opportunity to design your own specialization through six courses of your choice.
