Program description

Bachelor of Arts in Gender Studies

With a broad interdisciplinary base, the gender studies major at Hanover allows you to look at the subject of gender through a variety of lenses. The departments of theology, sociology, philosophy, psychology, political science, art history and English all have something to teach you about gender.

You'll look at gender in various cultures and how it shapes people's experiences and world views. You'll break down your own assumptions through dynamic class discussions and experiences. For many students, the major is not so much a body of knowledge as it is a deeply personal path of inquiry. The major is often combined with second major.

With the discussion of gender and sexuality, gay marriage, the LGBT movement and other gender issues now in the public arena, the gender studies major offers a focus for male and female students who are interested in engaging in the conversation. You may wish to join campus organizations such as Hanover College Feminists and Love Out Loud, an advocacy group and resource for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered (LGBT) individuals and their allies
