Why Study Gender Studies at New College?
Our Gender Studies program attracts a diverse group of students both in terms of self-identity and range of academic interests. Our cohort of declared Gender Studies concentrators includes students:
• With training in social science research methods such as interviewing, statistical analysis or participant observation.
At New College, you can combine your work in Gender Studies with work in another established Area of Concentration (AOC), completing what we call a "joint disciplinary" AOC. Students thus enhance their interdisciplinary work in Gender Studies with a solid grounding in a complementary AOC, such as biology, literature or sociology.
As a Gender Studies student at New College, you’ll explore:
• Gender as socially constructed, historically understood or cross-cultural.
Your course work may include group tutorials or Independent Study Projects (ISPs) on topics of special interest. Internships and activist and service-learning opportunities are also strongly encouraged.
