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 choose to complete an Area of Concentration (AOC) in Gender Studies or combine your work with another field, completing what we call a "joint disciplinary" AOC. Students have completed joint AOCs with a variety of other fields - you can see a full listing here.
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.
