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.
