Name Change and Program Revision!


Our program has officially changed its name to Women and Gender Studies!  This change reflects the expansion of the field to include examining how gender impacts men as well as women, as well as a greater emphasis on studying sexuality, sexual orientation, and gender variance.

We also have revised our program requirements, including the addition of some great new classes.  To see the new program requirements, please click here.  Current students, if you have any questions about how these changes affect you, please talk with Dr. Jenn Hunt, program coordinator.
