Explore the history of gender roles while discovering how our society is shaped by them. You will use this knowledge to gain new perspectives and promote equality. While the major is called Women’s and Gender Studies, men are welcome to study in this program at Mercer University as well. 


We provide a comprehensive course of study that empowers you to understand a diverse set of views on a number of topics that impact your daily life. This is an interdisciplinary major, meaning you will discover a wide range of study topics and how each relates to gender, including:

  • Anthropology
  • Biology
  • Communications and media studies
  • Global health
  • History
  • Literature
  • Political science
  • Religion
  • Sociology
