Gender Studies

Student Studying


The Gender Studies program at the University of South Alabama is an interdisciplinary program within the College of Arts & Sciences that is a collective of students, teachers, and researchers who focus on the dynamics of gender, sexuality, and gender identity in our society. The minor in Gender Studies offers a wide range of courses representing a variety of different academic disciplines in the humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences. With a dedicated faculty whose research and teaching interests are focused on issues related to gender and its construction in both historical and contemporary contexts, Gender Studies is the perfect complement to any major. Seeing the world through the prism of gender and how gender intersects with race, class, ethnicity, and sexuality allows students to gain a broader and deeper understanding of cultures and societies.
