Center for Women's and Gender Studies

The Center for Women's and Gender Studies, established in 1982, promotes scholarly inquiry related to women and gender. Interdisciplinary courses in Women's Studies and courses in other disciplines enhance student's knowledge about women, feminism, and the significance of gender in diverse cultures and contexts. The center offers a Bachelor of Arts degree, as well as undergraduate and graduate certificates. Students gain critical thinking skills for analyzing theories regarding women and gender, the relationship between gender and power, and the intersection of gender with sexuality, nationality, race, ethnicity, religion, class, age, and ability. From diverse global perspectives, the center fosters intellectual exchange, creative pursuits, and social justice advocacy.
