• Mission Statement

    The Gender Studies Program at Monmouth University critically investigates gendered power relations in all fields of social life, popular culture, and the arts through exciting course offerings and relevant campus events.

    We support the rigorous examination of the social construction of gender in various cultural and historical contexts and encourage students to become keen analysts of how gender inequalities in a range of domains intersect with other structures of advantage and disadvantage, such as race, class, nation, and sexuality.

    In so doing, we aim to equip all students with critical thinking skills essential to effectively bring about positive changes in a world deeply impacted by gender injustice.
