Gender Studies (Arizona State University)
As humans develop more well-rounded understandings of gender in the modern world, gender studies program like the bachelor’s degree offered by Arizona State University become increasingly popular degree options for incoming students. The program requires 120-course hours, most commonly completed over four years of education at the university.
Courses in a gender studies program may focus on women’s studies, men’s studies and LGBTQ studies. Classes can provide students with a well-rounded education on the effects of gender in modern society, and a student in the program may be expected to develop a fuller understanding of genders outside of their own. Students may also learn about power structures in society and the ways they cause inequality within a culture.
Graduates of gender studies programs have many options available to them when it comes time to pursue a career where they can apply their understanding of gender and its effects on civilization. Opportunities include journalism, public service positions and human services administration jobs.
