Gender/Cultural Studies and Teaching (M.A./MAT)
This 64-credit program leads to a Master of Arts in Gender/Cultural Studies, plus a Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT). Students work simultaneously toward both degrees and, upon successful completion of the program, are certified as elementary, middle, or high school teachers. Graduates are well positioned for leadership roles as department heads, lead teachers, or curriculum coordinators.
Gender/Cultural Studies and Communications Management (M.A./M.S.)
This innovative dual-degree option combines the theoretical and culturally progressive approach of the Gender/Cultural Studies program with the strategic thinking and practitioner approach of Simmons's Master's in Communications Management. The GCS/MCM program encourages critical thinking through courses on race, gender politics, and cultural theory, while teaching applied skills in the areas of communications technologies, business finance, organizational leadership, and cross-cultural communication.
