Gender and Women's Studies focuses on the study of gender as a central aspect of human existence. Students learn about the system of sex/gender construction, how social categories of gender can structure patterns of power, and how the institutions of family, education, employment, politics and media shape individuals as gendered beings. An interdisciplinary field, Gender and Women's Studies incorporates disciplines such as sociology, economics, political science, anthropology, literature, psychology and more.
