Gender Studies

Gender Studies is an interdisciplinary field that examines the biological, social and cultural construction of femininity, masculinity, sexuality and the ways we locate ourselves within gender systems. Interacting with factors such as race and class, gender structures the activities into which we enter in all aspects of life.

 One of the highlights of the spring semester is the annual Gender Studies Symposium, organized by a committee of students, with support from faculty and staff. 


Students interested in a Gender Studies Minor should contact the Director and/or one of the sponsoring faculty. It is recommended that students plan early (by the end of the sophomore year) for this minor to ensure that they can schedule the required courses and the electives of their choosing.
