What is Women’s & Gender Studies?

At Hostos Community College, Women’s & Gender Studies addresses the challenges faced by women, men, and families within the nation and across the globe. In WGS courses, students examine the pervasive role that gender plays in intellectual arenas and in our everyday lives. We offer a challenging and exciting interdisciplinary program of study that exposes and questions what is considered “normative” femininity and masculinity, including how these constructs intersect with race, sexuality, class and other categories of difference. In whatever class you enroll, you’ll find yourself in the company of teachers and learners who encourage and validate critical thinking, open dialogue, diverse perspectives, activism, and the relevance of theory to life experience.
