Course Descriptions


Women’s Studies


    WMS 101 Introduction to Women’s and Gender Studies

    Credits: (3)
    The field of Women’s and Gender Studies employs an interdisciplinary approach to analyzing the experiences of women and other marginalized groups. This introductory course examines the social construction of gender and its effect on cross-cultural, historical, political and literary contexts. Readings and discussions position race, class, sexuality and other categories of identity in relation to gender. While the course focuses on the United States, at times the course will investigate gender relations from global and transnational feminist perspectives.
