The Gender Studies program offers a bachelor of arts degree. It is an interdisciplinary field, offering essential academic inquiry in diverse areas, such as literature, history, art, health, and psychology, as well as examining men’s and women’s roles, achievements, and experiences in social activism, both historically and also across cultures. This program is designed to bring to light valuable knowledge about gender and power in the family and at work, in the arts, in politics, and in the sciences—information that traditional scholarship has often overlooked. Armstrong’s Gender Studies program also explores the relationship between cultural ideologies of human behavior and identity. It considers the ways class, race, ethnicity, nationality, sexuality, and age shape our experiences; and examines the ways in which gender is socially and culturally constructed.
Undergraduate students may also complete a minor in Gender Studies.
