Women and Gender Studies emphasizes the study of gender-based movements, gendered experience, research, analysis and theory, from a women-centered perspective, as subjects and as researchers.

Students develop links to the community and to businesses and professional sites where they have opportunities to apply and evaluate the research, methods and theories that they are studying.
