Gender Studies

Gain a better understanding of diverse interactions and global context.

Become an active advocate for social justice

Our Gender Studies minor is interdisciplinary and multicultural by design, incorporating insights from the social sciences, humanities, arts, and natural sciences. Drawing on the conceptual, theoretical, and methodological tools of these diverse disciplines, Gender Studies explores the relationships between gender and race, class, sexuality, nation, religion, ability, and species.


Students should be prepared to examine the production of knowledge, question systems of power, privilege, and inequality, as well as explore the individual and collective forms of resistance and social activism that occur to bring about social justice.

Mount Mercy is founded on a set of critical concerns and these are at the heart of Gender Studies—and a student should feel called upon to take action and make social change.
