Gender - 23004

This two-course connection allows students to explore gender from a variety of disciplinary perspectives: the humanities, social science courses in psychology, sociology, education, and/or the scientific perspective of psychobiology.

This combination of courses will ask students to consider the intersections between gender, sexuality, race, ethnicity and class. ENG 240  examines the ways in which poetic genres encode gender. PSY 290  explores gender issues by studying the psychology of women.

SOC 260  focuses on cultural norms and social structural aspects of gender. EDUC 270   explores how schools and colleges function as sites for teaching and learning about gender.  The courses will also be linked by a shared writing component that focuses on the variety of conventions used in these different disciplines.
