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.
