Women’s & Gender Studies is an interdisciplinary liberal arts program offering an undergraduate minor and a concentration. The program is uniquely qualified to prepare students for successful careers in human resources, education, diplomacy, advocacy and nonprofit work, government, law, and public administration.
Specifically, your Women’s & Gender Studies courses will:
- Help you appreciate diversity and give you the interpersonal and professional skills to live in a multi-cultural world
- Give you strategies for analyzing power dynamics and inequities in social structures
- Prepare you for graduate study and careers in fields such as law, government, health and human services, and public administration
- Equip you for policy work with advocacy groups, human rights organizations, environmental and consumer groups
The Women’s & Gender Studies program at Georgia Southern boasts an incredibly diverse faculty from nearly every college on campus. We work with student organizations, including the National Organization for Women, the Student Abolitionist Movement, Amnesty International, and the Sexual Assault Student Educators. We like to think of our program as a center for all things related to gender and human rights on campus.
