PROGRAM OVERVIEW

The Gender and Women’s Studies Option prepares students for jobs in a range of fields, and for transfer to four-year baccalaureate programs. Through an interdisciplinary approach, this option provides students the opportunity to think critically about gender in diverse contexts.

PROGRAM OUTCOMES

Upon completion of this program, students will be able to:

  • Critically examine the experiences of women in various social, historical, and cultural contexts
  • Demonstrate an awareness of gendered experiences in diverse cultures and across time, examining the ways in which race, social class, sexuality, and ethnicity intersect with gender.
  • Understand and apply fundamental concepts in feminist scholarship
  • Demonstrate the ability to communicate effectively through writing, analysis, research, leadership, and organization
  • Connect theory to practice through activism, community service learning and scholarship, and enhance their ability to advocate for justice
