Women and Gender Studies at St. Ambrose is an interdisciplinary program which explores and assesses human experience through the lens of contemporary scholarship on women and gender.
Students will focus on issues of diversity and be prepared for the multicultural world in which they live and work, a world currently being transformed by feminist scholarship, critical race theory, and activism.
Although primarily academic in emphasis, the Women and Gender Studies program assumes a leadership role on a campus with a long tradition of concern for social justice.
Majoring in Women and Gender Studies – even taking classes to minor – can be an eye-opening experience that may just end up changing your life, and the lives of others.
Women and Gender Studies is offered as a major and minor and is particularly relevant for students pursuing careers in business, social work, criminal justice, education, and health sciences.
