A major in gender and women's studies is paired with a minor in another field. There are required courses as well as courses you can choose. You can emphasize research, artistic, activist, and/or professional experiences.

The program offers course clusters in history and the social sciences, the arts and humanities, and global or cross-cultural contexts. Core courses will expose you to the work of gender and women's studies scholars and activists, while departmental courses show you how considerations of gender have transformed thinking and acting within the disciplines.

Internships and research or creative projects offer you practical learning.
