Description:Gender Studies and Feminist Research are jointly dedicated to taking up gender as a category of advanced analysis in its intersections with race, ethnicity, class, ability/disability, age, sexuality, and other categories of social difference. The term “feminist research” indicates indebtedness to and continued ties with a particular set of intellectual, activist, and institutional histories traditionally linked with Women’s Studies, while the term “Gender Studies” explicitly signals advanced scholarship and teaching in areas such as critical masculinity studies, trans studies, and lesbian/gay/bi/queer studies.

The M.A. in Gender Studies and Feminist Research provides students with the critical thinking and communication skills, knowledge base, and experiential learning opportunities to prepare them for careers in a wide range of fields (education, law, journalism, non-profit community work, public policy, and social work).
