About the Program
The Hunter College Women and Gender Studies Program is an interdisciplinary academic program that seeks to preserve, expand and share knowledge about women and gender. The Program reexamines the historical record to make visible women’s contributions to the world’s knowledge and cultures.The Women and Gender Studies Program seeks to create an understanding of the ways in which gender intersects with race, religion, class, ethnicity, ability and sexual orientation to shape all human experience, including the pursuit of learning.
The Women and Gender Studies Program includes a broad community of faculty, affiliated faculty, students, and staff and is administered by a director and a policy committee of elected faculty and student representatives. Most courses in the program are cross-listed in an academic department; these have been developed through the initiative of Women and Gender Studies-affiliated faculty throughout the college.
The Women and Gender Studies Program draws on the commitment and expertise of feminist scholars in more than 15 academic departments for our wide range of course offerings. The Women and Gender Studies major is useful, directly and indirectly, in all fields involving an analysis of society and social interaction. Women and Gender Studies graduates may seek employment in any field, including such areas as health care, counseling, advertising, market research, publishing, teaching, public service, advocacy or administrative work. The major is an appropriate preparation for professional schools and for postgraduate work in Women and Gender Studies or in one of the many disciplines from which the major draws its curriculum.
