Classrooms are student-centered, lively and supportive, with low student-to-faculty ratios.
Gender Studies draws on the rich body of interdisciplinary scholarship to investigate emerging theories and research on women, men, and gender fluidity as they intersect with race, class, culture, sex, policy, institutions, and human interactions. Faculty are dedicated to the promotion of the exchange of knowledge among people of different genders, classes, ethnicities, sexual orientations, and cultural conditions.
The Gender Studies program offers undergraduate and graduate certificates in cooperation with most of the departments in the College of Arts and Sciences, the School of Fine and Performing Arts and the College of Education. The opportunity to earn an 18-hour certificate is available to all students pursuing a degree at the University of Missouri–St. Louis and to individuals with a bachelor's or master's degree from any university. Courses are offered full online, blended or in person to meet your schedule. And, gender studies courses are open to all students, whether or not they are working toward a certificate.
The University of Missouri–St. Louis is the largest public research university located in Missouri's most populous and economically important region. Founded in 1963, we enroll nearly 17,000 students, and we are home to more than 1,400 faculty members.
