Happy Feminist Friday! Gender and Sexuality focus

The Gender Studies Program is excited to have created one of NWU’s threads, or areas of concentration, for our new Archway Curriculum. Students may choose to focus on Gender and Sexuality as part of their general education program. This semester we’re delighted to see Gender Studies classes at maximum capacity, including History of Women in the U.S., Philosophies of Race and Gender, Communication and Gender, and Family Violence Across the Lifespan.

Meredith Chesley

Why major in Gender Studies? Meredith Chesley (‘11) works with Central Community College in Lexington and Kearney: “It is a wonderful job that is fulfilling and allows me to apply my degree. I am so glad that I chose the path of Gender Studies.  Many of my family members questioned my decision, but it all worked out in the end.  I couldn’t ask for a better job right now, and one that I use my education constantly in. 🙂  So tell those Gender Studies students that there are always jobs that appreciate a perspective that can consider how gender applies in society.”
