What Makes Our Degree Distinctive?
Interdisciplinary, Intersectional, International
We provide you with an open intellectual setting where you can challenge yourself academically, politically, and personally.
The program goes beyond the gender binary and covers a broad range of subjects with sensitivity to gender, race, sexual orientation, and class.
In Women & Gender Studies courses you will learn theories to make sense of inequalities, methods to broaden knowledge, and practical expertise to put your mind to what matters.
In our courses, you will investigate the vexing histories and present realities of interlinked systems of oppressions and privileges. Using feminism and gender theories and methods alongside interdisciplinary methods, you will study the historical, social, and political experiences of gender within and beyond the gender binary. We will work together to understand the complex dynamics of gender and how the intersections of race, ethnicity, sexualities, and economic circumstances affect social inequalities.
We offer courses in an array of disciplines in the humanities, social sciences, visual arts, science, engineering, business, economics, and nursing.
Our program takes textbook knowledge to a higher level with learning by doing, hands-on, project-focused work. It links you to the wider world, connecting theory and praxis in a meaningful way.
