The Associate of Arts degree in Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s Studies is a liberal arts major offering interdisciplinary perspectives on the importance of gender and sexualities in relation to issues such as race, class, ethnicity, nationality, religion, age, (dis)ability, labor, multiculturalism, globalization, and the environment. Utilizing a variety of theoretical and methodological approaches in their study of the intersections of gender and sexuality with multiple identities, students are empowered to make theoretically informed personal, social, cultural, and institutional changes. Completion of the associate of arts degree prepares students to move into a curriculum at a four-year institution leading to a baccalaureate degree.
