The Women’s and Gender Studies major at SUNY Geneseo is a multi-disciplinary and interdisciplinary program designed to be flexible to accommodate multiple focuses. It includes feminist analyses of the construction and enforcement of gender differences and gender inequalities in various contexts, with an emphasis on the intersection of gender with race, class, sexuality, and nationality in the lives of women. Students are encouraged to apply what they learn in Women’s and Gender Studies classrooms to other areas of their lives. All students take a core set of Women’s and Gender Studies courses plus at least one course in five content areas in which the study of women and gender provide significant insights, using feminist methodologies and pedagogy. Additionally, each student completes a three course sequence in one of the clusters and completes a capstone experience designed to apply concepts from the Women’s Studies Program toward their future career goals.
