About

The Sexuality, Women's and Gender Studies program from Amherst College is a cross-disciplinary exploration of sexuality and gender and their intersections with race, class and nation. It is also an inquiry into the material, cultural and political lives of women.

Overview

Learning Goals

Upon graduation, a major in the Sexuality, Women's and Gender Studies program from Amherst College:

  • should have mastered an interdisciplinary and cross-cultural approach to the creation, meaning, function, and perpetuation of gender in human societies, both past and present.
  • should be able to make specific inquiry into women's material, cultural, and economic productions, their self-descriptions and collective undertakings. (See Writing a SWAGS Thesis for Honors and Special Topics/Independent Study)
  • should be able to analyze the intersection of gender with other categories of difference.

In order to achieve these goals, students should be able to analyze women and gender in the context of:

  • forming an argument and using evidence to back that argument up in both written and oral form;
  • analyzing texts from a variety of disciplines and cultures;
  • producing a coherent narrative and critically evaluating the narratives of others;
  • understanding the historical development of social and political issues;
  • appreciating the interrelationship of activism and intellectual inquiry.
