Introduction

Women’s, gender, and sexuality studies is an interdisciplinary program that examines the role of gender in the construction of lives, cultures, community norms, meaning systems, and systems of representation. All of the areas of study within the program use cross-cultural or multicultural investigations to understand the dynamics and differences in the operation of gender. Within specific contexts but also across differences, the program also focuses on the lives of women–on women’s past and present active involvement in the making of the world. Each of the areas of study emphasizes the ongoing interplay of theory and practice.

The program includes minors in gender studies, women’s studies, and sexuality studies (see below).
