Gender and Women's Studies
Welcome to the Warren Wilson College Gender and Women's Studies department's page. Feel free to explore.
The mission of the Gender and Women's Studies Program is to introduce students to a critical and interdisciplinary perspective on the social construction of gender with opportunities to bring this framework to bear in a variety of areas of study and careers.
The goals of the Gender and Women's Studies Program are the following:
Gender and Women's Studies is an interdisciplinary program that offers courses examining the formation of gender and intersections between gender and race, class, ethnicity, and sexuality; introduces students to women's intellectual, social, political, economic, spiritual, and artistic contributions and experiences of women in a variety of historical, global, and cultural contexts; and emphasizes the particular challenges that women face locally and globally. Students wishing to complete a major with a focus on Gender and Women's Studies have the option to major in Sociology and Anthropology with a concentration in Gender and Women's Studies (see section 188.8.131.52.1.3).
