Gender Studies

Bachelor of Arts

This involving and thought-provoking minor interrogates gender, sex, and other categories of difference, across contemporary and historical spaces and places.

Gender infiltrates everything we do, intersecting with race, class, ethnicity, sexuality and so on, to inform the way we experience our lives. 

Learning from experts across disciplines, you will gain new knowledge and skills to help you think critically about gender and its intersections, and to analyse the major challenges and changes in gender relations today. 

Graduates have the opportunity to take on roles that advance social justice and the status of women and girls, or work in politics, public policy, research or analysis.
