Our students gain skills that are valued in work with research centers, trade and international associations, and with policy-making and lobbying organizations. They may pursue careers in education, government, politics, or the social sciences. They may also bring their work to bear on the arts.
Because they are determined to use their skills to affect change, gender studies students learn how to work within their local communities while also keeping abreast of contemporary social issues. Depending on their unique interests, they may be motivated to enter the medical or health professions, business, or law. Work on gender increasingly has an impact on research in the hard sciences. Some of our students may pursue careers in human resource management, media and public relations, or counseling. Any career can benefit from the skills obtained through gender studies.
