Gender Studies at AUB is an interdisciplinary initiative that fosters cross-disciplinary teaching and research on the role of gender in society and its intersection with other social forces and identities. Through a variety of courses, students learn how different academic fields and disciplines view the operation of gender in the labor market, social movements, the family, healthcare, political systems, and cultural productions and representations. Undergraduate students across the University can receive a minor in Gender Studies by completing these requirements.
Launched in 2016, the initiative for Gender Studies is committed to further AUB’s liberal arts education by foregrounding gender as a site of intellectual inquiry, critical thinking, and creative exploration. Students will question common-sense understandings of gender and explore its material, cultural, and political realities in a variety of social and historical contexts.
Students can choose from a broad and growing range of course offerings in health sciences, social sciences, and the humanities, which include Gender & Violence, Sex, Gender & Media in the Middle East, Queer & Post-Queer Theories of Gender, Sexuality and Ability, Gender in Classical Islamic Society, Sexuality & Public Health, and Gender & Language.
