Fields of Study

Women’s and Gender Studies is an interdisciplinary field of research and teaching that places gender and women at the center of inquiry and seeks to blur rigid boundaries between classroom, campus, and community spaces; in other words, we strive for engaged, active learning, teaching, and research. The program relies on collaboration between academic departments, including English, History, Sociology, Psychology, and Family and Consumer Sciences, enabling students and faculty to utilize the perspectives and methodologies of Women's Studies across traditional disciplines. Women’s and Gender Studies is committed to developing and coordinating interdisciplinary undergraduate courses; offering public programming; fostering a feminist campus community; and working on issues of gender and social justice on and off campus.
