Women's and Gender studies is an undergraduate program in SHASS which offers concentrations, minors and an interdisciplinary major. We develop subject offerings and programming focused on intersectional analysis and how such identity categories as gender, race, and class (among others) impact power analysis and the cultural production of knowledge.
