Learning Goals of Women's and Gender Studies
- Both in speech and writing, students should demonstrate an understanding of gender as a pervasive social construction and of how it intersects with other social and cultural identities, such as class, race, age, ethnicity, nationality, and sexuality.
- Students should be able to apply this gender analysis to questions raised in disciplines across the liberal arts curriculum.
- Students should be able to use a gender analysis to integrate seemingly disparate elements (disciplines) across the liberal arts curriculum.
- Students should increasingly take more responsibility for their own learning.
- Students should demonstrate an ability to collaborate with others in learning.
- Students should be able to effect change both in their own lives and in their communities.
