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. Core courses incorporate information technologies and community service learning experiences that offer students opportunities to develop essential skills and civic commitments. 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.
