We examine the social understanding of gender issues as they relate to various dimensions of life, including sexuality, race and class, business and politics, artistic movements, law, the media, and more. A degree in Gender Studies equips you with an understanding of today’s diverse and multi-cultural world, an open mind about the challenges of gender difference, and the foundational skills that employers want most.Explore IU Gender Studies
