- What is Women's and Gender Studies?
Why Study About Women and Gender?
Women's and Gender Studies aspires to examine women's experiences - their bodies, psychology, history, ways of thinking and styles of communication and leadership. Women's and gender studies hopes to offer engaging courses that develop out of multi-cultural perspectives to enable citizens to become more reflective about their own lives.
The program works to enhance communication between men and women and to prepare students for careers in health care, education, business, publishing, journalism, law, social services, public government service, and the arts. Courses encourage students to become reflective about their own self-understanding in order to serve as active citizens in the world.
