Gender is subject to continual reinterpretation and wide cross-cultural variation. Therefore, studying gender is fascinating in itself and it provides important clues about fundamental characteristics within and across cultures. Gender Studies examines issues related to areas such as sexuality, the body, race and class, business and politics, health, developing societies, artistic movements, academic institutions and knowledge, sports and leisure, law, and the media.

The Gender Studies major provides a sound background relevant for employment in a variety of occupations within academia, the private sector, the professions, government, and the nonprofit sector. Graduates go into human resource management, public relations, advertising, or the media. Others become academics, lawyers, doctors, journalists, social workers or psychologists. Still others may work in education, welfare administration, the arts, public administration, or international aid programs.
