Since the late 20th century, feminist scholarship has explored the important, but sometimes hidden, ways that gender and gender inequality shape and are shaped by our cultural, social and personal worlds. More recent developments in the field recognize that these concerns are intricately connected with other dimensions of social power and identity, such as race, class, gender identity and sexual orientation.
Engaging courses taught by expert faculty from multiple disciplines as well as opportunities for internships and research allow our students to address the intersections of gender and other social variables through classroom and real-world settings.
