Women and Gender Studies

Students at any college can earn an award (degree or cert) in any of these programs. However, students may need to complete certain courses at other colleges within the District.

Program Overview

Do you have a talent for thinking critically, analyzing problems, and effectively communicating your findings? Do you have a passion for feminism and gender identities in a cultural and historical aspect? If so, consider a future in Women and Gender Studies.

As a student of our Women and Gender Studies program, you’ll get to discuss and critique the historical and contemporary theories and practices of feminism and gender identities. Our experienced instructors will ask you to delve into the experiences and perspectives of women and explore cultural and global issues of equality during this intensive interdisciplinary liberal arts program. Courses cover gender, history, culture, class, race, ethnicity, and sexuality.

Upon completion, you may seek professional roles like a child, family, and school social worker, human resources specialist, lawyer, postsecondary instructor, and more.
