What is the Women's & Gender Studies?

Women's & Gender Studies is an interdisciplinary academic program that examines the cultural and social construction of gender, explores the history, experiences and contributions of women to society, and studies the influences of gender on the lives of women and men.

The University offers a minor in Women's & Gender Studies, helping student's interpret concepts of gender and gendered identities in different social, cultural and political contexts. We also participate in the Graduate Certificate Program. Graduate certificates are intended to meet the supplemental post-baccalaureate education needs of professionals.

Women's Studies is also home to The Edna Maynard Gott Memorial Library founded in 1995 honoring Dr. Edna Gott, first woman awarded tenure in the Department of Economics. Materials provided by the College of Human Science and Preston F. Gott (1919-2002), Professor Emeritus of Physics.
