GWS 357 - Feminist Educations

4 credits (Spring)
Cross-listed as: EDU 357 .  Drawing on education studies, sociology, gender studies, and history, Feminist Educations examines how minoritized genders have encountered and  shaped K-12 schooling and post-secondary education over the last 150 years. The course explores the rise of co-education, university campus culture, the feminization of teaching, gender’s impact on learning styles, and the ways race, ethnicity,  sexuality, gender identity, and social class contribute to students’ aspirations and experiences within our deeply gendered learning institutions.

Prerequisite: GWS 111  or EDU 101  and one 200-level course in GWS or EDU.
Note: Not offered every year. Plus-2 option available.
