Women’s and Gender Studies provides a critical, interdisciplinary and cross-cultural understanding of women, gender and power in a global context.

Focusing on the social inequalities that result from interlocking oppressions, you will discover and produce knowledge from feminist perspecitves and link your academic pursuit with a call to activism. Within the context of the historic Christian faith, you'll learn to:

  • Think more critically about your own lives
  • Value complexity, diversity and difference
  • Mobilize feminist theories
  • Become agents of justice in the world
