Women’s and Gender Studies are based in feminist theory, queer theory, post-colonial and ethnic studies, and a variety of social sciences and cultural studies.
What you'll study
Students pursuing the Women's and Gender Studies track at the University of Colorado Denver, focus on issues of sex and gender as they manifest in societies through culture, language, politics, visual representation, and history. They take course work in social theory, feminist theory, and gender studies emphasizing critical thinking about the condition of women and the role of gender in both historical and in contemporary experience.
Students will take 9 hours of required courses work for either the Humanities or Social Science general degree plan. They then pursue focused coursework and track requirements as outlined below.
For students in either program pursuing a different track (Philosophy-Theory; Visual Studies; Community Health; Social Justice, etc., there is also an option of a 12-credit hour WGST Graduate Certificate that allows coursework for their track to be used for the certificate when course content is appropriate. For example, a student taking a course on Gender and International Development for the Social Justice track may also use this course to count towards the 12 credits required for a WGST Grad Certificate, thereby allowing the student to gain two-pronged concentration.
