The Women’s and Gender Studies program of Berea College studies an important field of inquiry that arose from the effort to understand gender roles and women’s historic struggle for justice throughout the world.


The Women’s and Gender Studies Department explores the diverse experiences, contributions, and perspectives of women and men, offers an interdisciplinary approach to the examination of the cultural construction of gender, and provides a feminist critique of dominant power relationships in the global community (familial, social, economic, and political), as well as an opportunity to manifest Berea College’s commitment to gender equity.

Participants in the Women’s and Gender Studies program of Berea College not only learn about gender experience from a variety of disciplines, but also directly apply their knowledge in the framework of an internship or directed study. Women’s and Gender Studies students also gain professional experience through Berea College’s Labor Program as teaching associates or as workers in the office of Women’s and Gender Studies.

The Interdisciplinary Academic Department offers both a major and a minor program in Women’s and Gender Studies.
