The UNC Gender Studies program enables participants, as students and lifelong learners, to investigate gender issues through interdisciplinary approaches. We examine the ways in which race/ethnicity, class, sexuality, nationality, age and ability affect how cultures create structures of gender, power and inequality. The program will equip you to understand complexities of identity in the ever-changing context of their personal, political and social lives.
Gender Studies offers students the opportunities to explore and understand gender
issues, building a more accepting world. Watch this video and learn more about UNC's
Gender Studies minor.
Using visual and literary art, UNC students express themselves, spark insight and inspire others to build and express understanding and acceptance. Find even more student expressions from the Women's Resource Center newsletter.
