Gender Studies (B.A.)
The Bachelor of Arts in Gender Studies is an interdisciplinary degree that draws upon courses in Gender Studies, American Studies, Arts and Humanities, Social Sciences, Psychology, and other gender-related courses. The program is designed to examine gender as a complex social construction that intersects with class, race, age, ethnicity, nationality, sexual orientation, and sexual identity; to examine the lives and experiences of groups which have been underrepresented in traditional academic work; and to acquaint students with the fundamental methodologies of women's and gender studies.
Each student in the Gender Studies program is actively involved in the formulation of his or her program of study, working with a faculty advisor to devise an individualized degree plan. Students pursuing a degree in Gender Studies may incorporate a minor from another discipline in their degree program.
