This immersion provides an introduction to women’s and gender studies. It considers the concept of patriarchy, its dominance throughout time, and the multitude of efforts by women and men to conceptualize an alternative worldview. The immersion examines the key historical patriarchal and feminist texts, studies the rise of feminist thought, and explores the history of women’s activism and women’s rights over time.

An immersion includes three WGST elective courses.  WGST 200 is recommended as a basis for WGST content but is not required.
