Program Director: Jillmarie Murphy

Majors use feminist theory and gender analysis in courses across the disciplines – in anthropology, classics, economics, English, history, modern languages, music, political science, psychology, sociology and studio fine arts.

A central goal of the program is to help students become aware of unexamined assumptions and stereotypes about sexual and gender differences, and how they shape human organizations and institutions. Many courses also introduce students to differences of class, race, ethnic and sexual orientation in a range of societies. Gender, Sexuality and Women’s Studies provides a foundation of knowledge that prepares students for careers in business, education, journalism, law, politics and public policy.
