Gender, Sexuality, and Feminist Studies

The Program in Gender, Sexuality, and Feminist Studies is dedicated to exploring gender identities, relations, practices, theories and institutions. The women and men who enroll in our classes each semester gain the opportunity to understand how social, historical, and psychological forces, organized by the central concept of gender, shape them as individuals; attain a fuller understanding of human behavior, culture, and society; acquaint themselves with the experiences of those of different economic classes, sexual orientations, and cultural and racial backgrounds; and transfer the critical and analytical skills they acquire in the study of gender and society to other classes, beyond the campus to other activities, and eventually to their professional careers.
