Online, In-person

Is an interdisciplinary introduction to the status, achievements, and experiences of individuals on the continuum of gender in society. Past and current theories of gender, power, and equity are analyzed. Societal constructs of gender and how those constructs intersect with institutions such as the arts, education, the labor force, law and politics, marriage and family life, and religion are critically examined. This course encourages students to examine and critique these institutions both personally and politically. A multicultural approach is taken to present the contributions of under-represented groups of women and gender minorities. Students are expected to attend one co-curricular activity or do a minimum of two hours of service-learning. Course offered every fall, spring and may be offered during additional sessions.

Corequisite(s): ACLT 053 or (ESOL 052 and ESOL 054.
General Education: Social and Behavioral Sciences (S), Diversity (D).
