Objectives

The program of courses which comprises the women and gender studies curriculum will enable students to examine women's and men's roles in society from multiple perspectives and disciplines; to understand and evaluate feminist and masculinities critical scholarship and to apply them across disciplines and in all areas of life; to analyze the connections between gender inequalities and other forms of discrimination (race, class, ethnicity, etc.); and to develop abilities and skills to deal positively and effectively with gender issues for individuals and society.

Students can take Women and Gender Studies as a stand-alone major or they may choose to take an additional, complementary major. The program is designed in such a way that this is feasible within four years.
