Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s Studies is an interdisciplinary program that emphasizes:

• Intersectionality, which highlights the diversity of human experience and the intersections of
    gender, race, ethnicity, culture, class, sexuality, nationality, religion, and other social
    categories.

• Interdisciplinarity, which features the synthesis of theoretical and methodological
    approaches grounded in multiple disciplines.

• Social justice and feminist perspectives, which facilitate the investigation of power dynamics,
    oppression, and social change practices across historical and cultural contexts; and the
    integration of academic approaches, activism, and service.
