Department of Women’s and Gender Studies

Women's and Gender Studies Faculty Profiles

Women’s and Gender Studies is an interdisciplinary field that places gender and its intersections with race, social class, sexuality, and ethnicity at the center of rigorous academic inquiry. These structural forces shape the individual and collective lives of all persons across diverse cultures and times as well as provide analytical categories for critically examining the worlds in which we live. The Women’s and Gender Studies major offers particular attention to the lives and experiences of women and girls via the critical scholarship of the humanities, sciences, and social sciences. Department faculty endeavor to provide intellectually rich student-centered learning environments via limited class sizes, collaborative research opportunities, and summer internship support.
