beliefs, opportunities, and behaviors. The wide range of classes
offered explores the intersections of gender, race, class, and
sexuality; the institutional structures that have an impact on
women's and men's lives; and the broad range of feminist theory
that seeks to explain and influence women's status in society.
Among the areas of emphasis in Women's, Gender & Sexuality
Studies are gender and sexuality, queer studies, decolonial
feminisms, cultural representation and literature, women and labor,
feminist theory, critical race feminism, immigration and
