Master of Arts in Gender/Cultural Studies
Our Gender/Cultural Studies program examines intersecting systems of power and privilege, and the ways in which race, ethnicity, nationality, class, gender, sexuality, and sexual orientation are constructed within the United States and in international contexts. We foster a supportive, stimulating environment with small class sizes, diverse student cohorts, faculty mentors and a flexible curriculum.
Utilizing an intersectional approach, students master theory and engage with research in feminism, poststructuralism, queer theory, race theory, cultural studies and postcolonialism, and practice multi-perspective, multi-factored theoretical analyses.
With access to an interdisciplinary curriculum, you'll choose from a wide range of courses based on your academic interests and professional goals. Our students draw insight and inspiration from Africana Studies, Children's Literature, Economics, Education, English, History, Philosophy, Public Policy, Sociology, and Women's and Gender Studies. Students also gain access to the dynamic team-taught course offerings and resources of the nine member institutions in the The Consortium for Graduate Studies in Gender, Culture, Women, and Sexuality (The GCWS).
Drawing from coursework in the humanities and social sciences, the GCS program offers flexible paths of study to suit careers in higher education, healthcare, social services, schools, and non-profits. Our students are prepared to pursue doctoral studies across a range of disciplines, including Africana Studies, American Studies, Anthropology, Cultural Studies, English, Gender Studies, Race Studies, Sexuality Studies, Sociology, and Women's Studies.
