What will I learn in a gender, race, and identity degree program?

Students in the Gender, Race, and Identity major study the intersection of race, gender, sexuality, class and other forms of identity, difference and power that comprise our social world. The major is expressly interdisciplinary and intersectional and provides opportunities to study both historical and contemporary contexts as well as global and local settings. Students gain tools to critically analyze and engage our world and to enact change in their communities and professions, including through careers in public advocacy, politics, education, sustainability, the arts and more. Within the B.A. in Gender, Race, and Identity, students may fulfill either the general major in GRI or complete either of two specializations, Ethnic Studies or Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies.
