Guide for New Students

Director: Professor Meera Sehgal

The Women's and Gender Studies program provides an interdisciplinary meeting ground for exploring questions about women and gender that are transforming knowledge across disciplinary lines in the sciences, social sciences, arts, and humanities. The program explores the intersections of gender with class, sexuality, ethnicity and race as central to social and cultural analysis.

Can I major in it? Both a major and a concentration are offered.

Topics explored: Feminist theory, women's history, health and reproduction, transnational feminisms, women in Asia, and women in literature.
