The interdisciplinary major and minor sequences in Women's and Gender Studies supports the University commitment to diversity and social justice through courses that open discussion about the ways in which gender constructs our lives and institutions. These courses focus on gender identity issues in academic study, consider feminist perspectives and philosophy, and challenge assumptions about women’s roles and gender in American and world cultures. Women's and Gender Studies courses are open to all undergraduates - women and men - and most offer general education credit to meet diverse IWU requirements.
