Interdisciplinary Courses

What does “interdisciplinary” mean?

Interdisciplinarity means to combine two or more fields into one discipline. An interdisciplinary field crosses boundaries and bridges gaps between traditional methods, thoughts, and fields.  Interdisciplinary student scholars are creative innovators that form their own fields to meet the needs of a changing society. 

So what does this mean for the Women’s and Gender Studies Program?

The WGS Program encourages you to grow as an interdisciplinary thinker by providing core courses steeped in broad methods and theories and allowing you to take courses across different established disciplines that focus on women or gender. These varied courses will inform you of other schools of thought that can be applied or improved by women’s and gender studies’ methodologies.

Courses can focus on topics such as:

  • women and film
  • women and violence
  • women writers
  • women and politics
  • women in other cultures
  • gender and communication
