Women and Gender Studies students learn to understand the interconnection of gender equality with other social justice movements. The program seeks to create social justice activists, informed citizens and leaders, workers, and parents, guardians or stewards of children.
Students of the APSU Women and Gender Studies Program learn to analyze and assess the impact of the multiple layers of identity people juggle. These include gender, race, ethnicity, class, sexual orientation, gender identity, and disabilities as students explore the diverse disciplines of human history, creative arts, literature, politics, economics, natural and social sciences. Our program prepares students to negotiate conflicts in the workplace and in their personal lives. We prepare students for several professions, graduate studies, or social justice work. The APSU Women and Gender Studies Program introduces students to an interdisciplinary framework with the concept of gender as a category of analysis as its focus.
