Feminist Studies is an interdisciplinary discipline that produces innovative research and fosters effective and creative teaching. Our faculty focus on the ways that relations of gender-intersecting with race, class, ethnicity, sexuality, nation, ability, and other axes of difference-are embedded in social, political, and cultural formations. Our three broad areas of concentration are race and nation, genders and sexualities, and productive and reproductive labors. The Department is among a select group of universities offering a Ph.D. in this field for those interested in research and teaching at the university level. The independent M.A. program is on temporary hold for admittance for the 2021-2022 academic year.
