Major Areas of Study: Gender Studies

The interdisciplinary Gender Studies minor analyzes the impact of gender upon individuals and societies. In Gender Studies, the roles of women and men in literature, philosophy, history, the sciences, and education are examined; how have these roles changed and how will they be altered in the future? Students benefit by expanding their vision of the world and by examining their most basic assumptions about gender roles and stereotypes.
