Women and Gender Studies

Women and Gender Studies provides an interdisciplinary and culturally inclusive approach to gender. The curriculum addresses the meaning and importance of gender in a variety of individual, institutional and transnational contexts. It provides opportunities to learn about citizenship, globalization, religious fundamentalism, war, technoscience, environmentalism, women’s health, activism and resistance.

The program fosters a strong student community through a wide range of workshops and events as well as academic and practical links to local, national and international organizations.
