About

Critical Gender Studies is an interdisciplinary program from the University of California, San Diego offering students the opportunity to study gender, race, class, sexuality, and nationalism as intersecting categories of analysis and experience.

Overview

The program’s curriculum is designed to move students beyond popularized accounts of gender to consider its complex constructions over time and in a variety of cultural, scholarly, and global arenas. 

Key Features

  • Students can expect to encounter a rich spectrum of theoretical and methodological approaches in studying these complex constructions—approaches which all share, despite their differences, a critical orientation in their analyses of gender relations.
  • Critical Gender Studies program from the University of California, San Diego provides students with rigorous interdisciplinary and multi-disciplinary training and, for this reason, is an ideal major for students with career aspirations in law, medicine and the health sciences, public administration, social services, public education, and higher education.

Programme Structure

  • Students can expect to encounter a rich spectrum of approaches in studying these complex constructions—the majority of a student’s advanced work in the program consists of upper-division courses from the Departments of History, Communication, Literature, Ethnic Studies, Sociology, Anthropology, Philosophy, and Political Science. 
  • However, despite their important differences, what these approaches share is a critical stance with respect to the subject of gender. This stance, reflected in the program’s name Critical Gender Studies, refuses easy answers when exploring the social relations of gender and reaches, instead, for detailed accounts of the intricacies and paradoxes of power through which these relations are and have been made and maintained.
