Teaching is one of core missions of Women and Gender Studies. Women and Gender Studies is an interdisciplinary program that includes several core faculty and affiliates from virtually all colleges. We offer a variety of courses each semester, including two courses that meet Mason CORE requirements: WMST 200: Introduction to Women and Gender Studies (social science CORE requirement) and WMST 100: Representations of Women (global understand CORE requirement). We also offer courses in Feminist Theory (WMST 330 and WMST 630) and Feminist Research Methods (WMST 410, WMST 610, WMST 411 and WMST 611) each year. Additionally, our core faculty bring their research directly into the classroom teaching a variety of special topics courses on issues such as human rights, queer theory, feminist and queer disability studies, sexuality, immigration, gender based violence, and intersections of race, class and gender.
