Gender Studies courses develop social and political insights and multidisciplinary perspectives that enhance your major, offer opportunities for personal expression and interaction, teach you to work collaboratively, provide analytical tools to increase personal and global awareness, and improve self-reflection, cultural critique and social activism. 

Gender Studies classes promote the exchange of knowledge among people of different genders, classes, ethnicities, sexual orientations, and cultural conditions. Taught by committed and dynamic faculty, Gender Studies courses enjoy strong reputations for student-centered, lively, and supportive classroom experiences. Day and evening courses are offered. Gender Studies courses are open to all students, whether or not they are working toward a certificate.

In sum, Gender Studies courses improve your marketability—at no extra cost. Gender Studies courses simultaneously count toward a departmental major and a graduate or undergraduate certificate—or they can add up to an individualized, interdisciplinary major.
