Department of Ethnic, Gender and Women's Studies

Department of Ethnic, Gender, and Women's Studies


As an Ethnic, Gender, & Women’s Studies student, you will dig deeper into the issues surrounding women, gender, LGBTQ+ communities, transnational identities and issues, and American racial and ethnic groups.  

Our courses provide insight into the histories, contributions, social/cultural developments, intellectual and creative expressions and present circumstances of these groups in the United States and transnationally.

The multidisciplinary nature of the courses prepares students to communicate across disciplines and to connect global issues with local ones—connections which are vital in this increasingly globalized world.
