Women & Gender Studies

EKU Women and Gender Studies (WGS) is a multidisciplinary program offering both a minor and a certificate in Women and Gender Studies.

WGS acquaints students with the growing research on women and gender studies. WGS courses address the intersections of gender, race, class, sexualities and abilities and promotes active learning and social engagement.

In our classes as well as in our student groups, we encourage students to analyze competing perspectives and to integrate knowledge across traditional academic boundaries. Students learn to identify and analyze gender-based assumptions and biases and to recognize their consequences on individual, social and cultural levels.
