Our Gender/Cultural Studies (GCS) program examines constructions of gender, race, class and nation in the United States and across the globe. We foster a supportive, stimulating environment with small classes, faculty mentors and a flexible curriculum.
Our students master cutting-edge theory in feminism, poststructuralism, cultural studies and postcolonialism, and practice multi-perspective, multi-factored theoretical analyses.
You'll choose from a wide range of interdisciplinary courses based on your interests and career goals. Our students draw insight and inspiration from Africana studies, communications, economics, education, English, history, modern languages, philosophy, political science, sociology and women's and gender studies. You'll also have access to the resources of the 8 member institutions in the Graduate Consortium in Women's Studies.
Our students are the next generation of scholars, educators, activists and professional leaders. They go on to rewarding careers in social work, student life and student services, non-profits and education, as well as further study in law school and doctoral programs.
