University Majors

University of California, Los Angeles
Gender Studies B.A.

Gender Studies is an interdepartmental program in the College of Letters and Science. It is a multidisciplinary field which draws on the humanities, social sciences, life/physical sciences and other areas. It is research - and curriculum drawn from that research - which views women from their own perspectives rather than from the points of view of what men have studied, claimed or written about women. Its historical and intellectual roots are in worldwide progressive movements for social change as they have affected the academy. The field offers a holistic approach to the study of fundamental issues of sex and gender - how they have been reflected in culture and history, how they shape social, political, economic and institutional organization as well as personal experience and perception, how they interact with issues of race, ethnicity, class -and how new ways of thinking can challenge and transform the process by which knowledge about human beings and our behavior is acquired, interpreted and transmitted.
