In the classroom

Our GSWS courses offer students a transformative experience through the analysis of constructions and intersections of gender, race, class, age, ability and sexuality.  Learn to develop practical, theoretical, organizational and communicative skills that will help you think, research, and write critically and creatively about the world we live in.
