A concentration in Gender and Society provides students with an understanding of the role of gender in the experiences of females, males, and gender non-conforming individuals. The interdisciplinary nature of the concentration enables students to develop the skills to critically evaluate the ways in which inequality, oppression, and social structure contribute to various social problems such as the pay gap, sexual assault, domestic violence, and human trafficking. The Gender and Society concentration equips students for jobs in a variety of areas such as advocacy, counseling, public health, policy-making and government, business, and criminal justice.
All prospective majors should contact the undergraduate advisor in Sociology as early in their academic careers as possible for information about the degree requirements. Transfer or returning students should consult with the undergraduate advisor in Sociology concerning completion of the core courses.
These degree requirements are subject to periodic revision by the academic department, and the College reserves the right to make exceptions and substitutions as judged necessary in individual cases. Therefore, the College strongly urges students to consult regularly with their Sociology advisor and CLAS advisor to confirm the best plans of study before finalizing them.
