Apa yang akan saya pelajari?

Gender and diversity are political and culturally constructed individual and social identities and thus impact all of us. Whether we recognize it or not, we experience, reinforce and disrupt social and systemic expectations about diversity categories (gender, race, sexualities, able bodiedness and disability, socioeconomic status, ethnicity and religion) every day. The concentration in Gender and Diversity Studies explores all of these intersections within a critical context and analyzes how privilege, power and oppression are produced, challenged and changed at both micro- and macrocosmic levels.

WHY CHOOSE GENDER AND DIVERSITY STUDIES?

In an increasingly global, heterogeneous culture, we are bound to engage with diverse people, practices, and beliefs. Understanding and respecting differences can prepare you for and enhance both your professional and personal lives, whether your future is in Criminology, politics, teaching, science or counseling, among other career options. Because the concentration integrates classes from multiple departments, you are able to synthesize material across boundaries and apply what you learn to effect social change at myriad levels.

WHAT WILL YOU LEARN?

You'll learn how identity markers like race, class, and gender impact individual lives, social group formation, and patterns of power and privilege. You will:

  • Develop an awareness of and an ability to address sensitive issues with respect for and understanding of diverse perspectives, values and backgrounds
  • Gain an understanding of how power structures are created, maintained and challenged within cultural, economic, historical and political contexts
  • Learn to think critically about and gain an appreciation of the culturally specific experiences of sex, gender, race, and other identity categories
  • Apply what you've learned to social, professional and community environments
  • Participate in internships to apply what you've learned, acquire practical experience in the workforce, and create professional networks.

CAREERS IN GENDER AND DIVERSITY STUDIES

This major enhances career preparedness in a variety of fields, including:
