Women's and Gender Studies
Systems of oppression and privilege are interconnected in the ways that they shape social structures, identities, and experiences. Students study an interdisciplinary curriculum including courses related to political science, communication, history, English, sociology, anthropology, African and Black Diaspora studies, Latin American and Latino studies, education, law, and theatre.
The women’s and gender studies program is committed to the Vincentian values of social justice and community service. We collaborate with various community-based organizations on conferences and initiatives throughout Chicago including an annual conference focused on building an international movement to end violence against women.
Within DePaul, faculty, staff, and students connected with women’s and gender studies have been integrally involved in the establishment of the Sexual Harassment Office, the Women’s Center, the Office of LGBTQA Student Services, the LGBTQ undergraduate minor program and the Stop Sexual Violence Taskforce.
