Offers an opportunity to understand various academic disciplines through the material, social, and cultural experiences of women and through the concept and context of gender as it applies to the sexes and frames the way we make sense of the world. This interdisciplinary option traces the experiences of women across time and culture, helping students understand how gender works to shape the lives of individuals as well as the characters of whole societies. A course on either Queer Literature or Women in Literature will also let you see how gender is portrayed in literature. Course electives in social sciences, such as Psychology of Women, Sociology of Gender, Sociology of Human Sexuality or Gender and the Environment will let you see how the social relationships impact men and women. Please note that transfer to many four-year colleges and universities may require the completion of four sequential semesters of World Languages.
