Welcome To Women's studies and Feminist Research

Explore the dynamics that shape your everyday experiences as a gendered person in contemporary culture. In our courses you will learn how to develop a critical perspective that takes factors such as sex, gender, sexuality, race, class and disability into account. You might find your worldview transformed as you apply these perspectives to your study in other classes and to all aspects of your life. Our courses reflect an expanding field of feminist research including feminist theory, health issues, philosophy, queer issues and sexuality studies, legal issues, violence against women, women and equity in the workplace, and women and the creative arts.
We offer undergraduate degrees in Women's Studies, Feminist Theory, Gender, Sexuality and Culture, and Sexuality Studies, as well as Masters and PhD programs.
