Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies
Develop a deeper understanding of the structures of power that shape gender and sexual identity. Offered as a minor.
The Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies minor is a liberal arts, interdisciplinary program that offers the opportunity to apply a critical lens to fundamental structures of human interaction and cultural production.
You will learn about current scholarship in women’s history and culture, gender studies, sexuality studies, and feminist theory. Questions motivating this scholarship include: How have gender and sexuality been used as systems of social control throughout history? How have they served as catalysts for social change? Are gender and sexuality biologically determined or socially constructed? What types of messages do mass media and popular culture give us about gender and sexuality, and how do these messages influence self-identity?
Using a range of disciplinary methodologies and perspectives, you will develop a deeper understanding of the structures of power that shape gender and sexual identity.
