Attn Graduate Students: Do you include gender in your research?

Women’s & Gender Studies examines the cultural and social construction of gender, explores the history, experiences and contributions of women to society, and studies the influences of gender on the lives of women and men.

Whether students are choosing to go into fields of study such as Business, Medicine, Law or Public Relations, courses in Women’s & Gender Studies provide critical professional development.  Our courses emphasize critical thinking across disciplines, which is vital to success in any career you choose.  You will learn how to critically evaluate practices, beliefs and standards about gender that shape the opportunities that women and men face in their daily lives.
