About

This approach stresses intersectional analysis of gender and sexuality in relation to race, ethnicity, class, culture, nationality, ability, and other factors that shape experiences, identities, cultural productions, and ways of knowing. The women's and gender studies curriculum also examines social institutions and networks of power while considering avenues of resistance, justice and transformation.

Students in the Women's and Gender Studies programme offered by Roosevelt University can expect small, discussion-based seminars; close mentoring by professors; collaborative assignments; direct work with community organizations; guest speakers; and participation in WGS-related events outside the classroom.

Careers

Recent graduates of the women's and gender studies program have gone on to careers as K-12 teachers, writers, non-profit leaders, psychotherapists, social workers, health educators, political campaign managers, community organizers, and urban planners.
