About the Program
Women’s and Gender Studies is an interdisciplinary major in which students explore gender identities, relations, practices, theories and institutions. Courses examine gender roles and relations, women’s cultural contributions, the social, historical, political, and economic status of women, the intersection of race, class, and gender issues, and theoretical concerns about the relation of gender to knowledge. Women’s and Gender Studies courses are offered in every school on campus. Many may be used to satisfy the College’s general education requirements in the social sciences and the humanities.
