Our curriculum invites you to think critically about gender differences and sexuality from multiple disciplinary perspectives. Gender and Women's Studies courses—which are offered in Communication, Economics, English, History and Art History, Nursing, Peace and Justice, Philosophy, Psychology, Sociology, Theatre, and Theology—prepare women and men to think critically about the stereotypes that inform our understandings of gender and sexuality; encourage respect for difference and cultural diversity; integrate intellectual history with everyday life; and foster awareness of current and historical role models that can empower all students and promote equality.
