Gender, women, and sexualities studies value a diverse curriculum, fostering the inclusion of material that highlights the unique elements and intersections of gender, class, sexual orientation, race/ethnicity, and disability-groups that have historically experienced social oppression. The academic program includes a major in gender, women, and sexualities studies and two minors, one in gender studies and another in sexualities studies. The major and minors framed within intersectional and transnational feminist frameworks encourage students to: think creatively and critically about sex, gender, and social justice; develop inclusive communication and collaboration skills; and engage respectfully and responsibly with a diverse group of people in their own environments and worldwide.
The B.A. in Gender, Women, and Sexualities Studies requires a minor. A grade of "C-" or better is required in each course before proceeding to subsequent courses.
