GENDER STUDIES

Director: Martha Jane Brazy (251) 460-7540
Department of Gender Studies web site:
http://www.southalabama.edu/genderstudies

The Gender Studies Program offers a minor in the interdisciplinary study of contemporary and historical gender theory and gender issues on a global level. The program allows students to acquire depth of knowledge in specific areas of gender-related focus and gender theory, as well as a wide range of research skills and methodologies from across the disciplines. The program offers courses from eleven departments within the College of Arts and Sciences, as well as service learning and community internship opportunities.
Gender Studies deepens students’ understanding of areas of study such as historical/cultural constructions of femininity and masculinity and their representations; sexuality; feminist theory; LGBTQ studies; male and female physiology; gender and health, business and politics; and the intersection of race, class, gender and sexuality. The Gender Studies Program encourages students to become actively engaged in gender-focused research and its practical applications, and provides numerous opportunities for students to interact with faculty members to discuss their current research.
