The Gender and Women’s Studies (G/WS) major and minor approach the study of gender – including masculinity, women’s equality, human sexuality, and human sexual orientation – from deeply interdisciplinary perspective. Informed by feminist and other critical theories, the G/WS curriculum is committed to honest and productive discussions about the key role of gender in social life; the interplay of race, class, and gender in the construction of meaning; and the seasons that unequal access to resources and power persists in the world. Central to a G/WS program is respect for diversity; a concern for social justice; and an exploration of alternative ways of achieving self-expression, conducting research, and working in the world. The major is designed to fit squarely within a liberal arts tradition as well as to prepare students for careers in arenas where addressing social inequality is important.
