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 requirements listed on this page.
Launched in 2016, the Initiative in Women and 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. Through a variety of courses and this recently established Minor in Women and Gender Studies, students explore how different disciplines view the operation of gender in the labor market, social movements, the family, healthcare, political systems, and cultural productions and representations.
