Gender and Women's Studies at Oklahoma State University

We are a vibrant academic program offering a minor for undergraduates, support for curricular development and research by faculty, and opportunities to collaborate with community and campus partners who are intrigued by how gender shapes the world. Faculty and courses from twelve departments across the university contribute to this interdisciplinary program. Students and faculty in Gender and Women’s Studies pursue research in the history of women, in theories of gender, in feminism, in the cultural construction of masculinity, and in the cross-cultural intersections of race, class, nationality, and sexuality.

Gender and Women’s Studies grew out of a desire to make curricula relevant to real-world, lived experience. We strive to make our teaching, research, and outreach activities integrated, so that students, faculty, staff, and community members engaged in Gender and Women’s Studies have a sense of how our intellectual work derives from and extends into everyday lives, especially those of women.
