Our students create change
We live in a moment when issues of identity, difference, and power continue to be highly, often violently, contested in the public sphere. FGSS helps students analyze how gender roles, relations, and identities intersect with hierarchies of power such as race, class, nationality, ethnicity, sexuality, disability, and age. Through personalized, interdisciplinary curricula and practical experience, our students learn critical gender and sexuality studies methodologies so that they can bring intersectional, social justice frames to their work in the world.
The Program offers an undergraduate major, secondary major, and minor, and an interdisciplinary honors program that is open to undergraduates in all majors. Additionally, the program offers a PhD minor that is open to all students currently enrolled in a doctoral program at Stanford.
