What can I do with a degree in women’s and gender studies?

By studying women’s and gender studies, you will learn to apply feminist theory and think more critically about the ideas and events that you encounter in your everyday life. You also will use gender analysis to understand and evaluate the experiences of diverse individuals and communities. You may apply this lens to your work in a number of fields, from business and law to nonprofit organizations, government, and education.
