The Gender and Women's Studies program at Villanova University challenges students to engage with the discipline through courses and programming that challenge sex-biased generalizations and stereotypes.


Our Gender and Women's Studies curriculum at Villanova University stresses the exploration of both theoretical and practical concepts of power, as applied to gender and sexuality and to all forms of oppression through a multi-disciplinary and interdisciplinary approach. Honoring the social, as well as the intellectual traditions of the discipline, our courses, which can be found in departments across the university, draw on feminist models of collaborative learning and value the knowledge and authority that students as well as teachers bring to the classroom.

Across the Gender and Women's Studies curriculum, students experience the dynamic process of integrating the quest for knowledge with personal experience, through courses that give them a voice, a sense of community, and an invitation to work for social change. 

What is Gender & Women's Studies?
