Gender Studies Pathway

 The Gender Studies Pathway focuses on gender as a significant cultural and cognitive category. Courses
 examine how gender has influenced the lives, status, and opportunities of all people, and attend to ways
 in which gender intersects with race, class, and ethnicity to shape social structures and individual
 experiences.
