Women's and Gender Studies

Women's and gender studies cultivates a critical awareness of the contributions of women and the impact of gender in our lives, both historically and in the contemporary world. Our interdisciplinary scope includes examining these issues from the perspective of politics, anthropology, sociology, psychology, philosophy, art, and literature.

The objectives of the program are

  • to explore existing knowledge about women and gender in a variety of disciplines;
  • to critically assess the traditional disciplines in the light of new data concerning women and gender;
  • to provide an academic foundation for students planning careers in women's and gender studies or related fields; and
  • to promote research about women and gender within existing disciplines.
