Liberal Arts and Sciences: Women and Gender Studies

Women and Gender Studies is an exciting program that analyzes how the social construction of gender shapes the lives of women and men. It is an interdisciplinary program that examines historical and contemporary issues through the lens of gender, while emphasizing race/ethnicity, class, and sexual identity as categories of analysis. Gendered perceptions of women and men in media, arts and sciences, health fields, and literature are examined. Internships designed to provide students with first-hand experience in public and private agencies and organizations are available.

Degree Requirements

Careers on Career Coach

While the curriculum for this program is designed primarily for transfer to a bachelor’s degree program, students develop vital transferrable skills that support them in the workplace as well. A quality liberal arts education provides students with one of the many lenses through which they view the world and prepares them to pursue a wide array of careers. We encourage students to intentionally engage in applied learning opportunities (such as volunteering, services learning, internships, jobs, research, etc.) as well to gain valuable hands-on experience.
