Students on Campus

 

Marquette University's Women's and Gender Studies Program offers a primary or secondary major and minor that promote a critical, feminist, and cross-cultural understanding of gender and power in a global context and across disciplinary boundaries.

The Program provides students with the knowledge and skills necessary for just and equitable leadership in professional, civic, and religious roles. WGST majors and minors will learn how gender has shaped the world around us and our ways of making sense of that world, and how sexism has operated in a dynamic with other systems of oppression both historically and in contemporary contexts. Students will also learn to recognize the huge diversity of gendered experiences and perspectives among men and women, and to cultivate a disposition to embrace gender diversity and to work for justice.
