WS-301. Introduction to Women's and Gender Studies

Credits: 3

This course introduces students to theoretical assumptions that underlie the social construction of gender and the historical development of feminist thought. Students are also exposed to a variety of contemporary issues related to gender, sexuality, race, culture, class, the family, reproduction, and language in light of these theoretical assumptions. Students are expected to complete a senior capstone project that addresses gender as a category of analysis to be presented at the annual Women's and Gender Studies conference. Offered every spring semester.

Junior or senior status.
