What is GRI?
The Department of Gender, Race, and Identity (GRI) pursues the interdisciplinary and intersectional study of gender, race, and related constructions of identity, difference, and power that have structured and today continue to comprise our social world. We offer a B.A. in Gender, Race, and Identity; undergraduate minors in Black Studies, Ethnic Studies, Holocaust, Genocide, and Peace Studies, Indigenous Studies, Latinx Studies, LGBTQ Studies, Religious Studies, Social Justice, and Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies; and at the graduate level, both an M.A. and a Graduate Certificate in Gender, Race, and Identity.
GRI prepares students for work in a wide variety of fields, including politics, law, advocacy, education, social services, community organizing, community health, the arts, sustainability and others. Our alumni hold leading positions in these fields.
