The Women and Gender Studies program is an intensive, dynamic teaching and learning program that centers on a interdisciplinary, intersectional, transnational and social justice approach to the study of women, gender and sexuality.
Our General Studies with Emphasis in Women and Gender Studies Associate of Arts degree, and educational workshops sponsored by our Womyn's Gender Equity Center and Womyn For Womyn Mentoring program encourages students to think critically, and engage in social change work to ensure a just, inclusive and sustainable world.
We may have moved to remote services, but the Women & Gender Studies Program and the Womyn's Gender Equity Center is still here for you!
We can help you find campus and community resources, information on Title IX, sexual assault, domestic & dating violence, LGBTQ and to register for CalFresh.
