UNCG Student Learning Outcomes

Women's & Gender Studies (BA)


The central focus of the Women’s and Gender Studies Program is to explain how gender is produced within social institutions and how these institutions affect individual lives and to analyze the mutual constitution of gender, race, ethnicity, class, sexuality, nationality, and religion. The Program addresses issues of neglect, omission, and bias in curricula while honing critical thinking skills vital to a liberal education. Faculty in WGS are expected to further this vision through their teaching, research, and service.
