Gender & Sexuality Studies

Gender & Sexuality Studies promotes an interdisciplinary approach to learning that emphasizes gender and sexuality as essential components in an understanding of our past, present, and future. Grounded in contemporary scholarship, Gender & Sexuality Studies provides students with innovative perspectives from which to analyze and assess familiar subjects. Critical and analytical skills are developed and honed as students identify and contextualize profound connections between gender, sexuality, and one’s assigned roles and statuses, and one’s access to social, economic, and political power.
