The Women’s and Gender Studies (WGS) Program is committed to and supports and promotes equality and equal access and opportunities for all, in all areas of society, including those that are political, social, cultural, economic, educational, personal, career and global.
We recognize that education is the foundation of success and accept the responsibility to create challenging and encouraging intellectual environments in our classrooms.
The WGS Program is also dedicated to encouraging students to claim their access and their right to equality and to providing opportunities that support such action and endeavors, both in and outside of the classroom.
We empower students to recognize their ability to change their lives, and we reach out into the community and invite the community into our program in a rich exchange of events and discussions.
Lastly, the WGS Program believes in working toward change that helps to make such equality and opportunity possible for all.
We accept the responsibility for the work we do, hold it to a high standard, and we are ready to adapt to the diverse needs of our students as they change with the times.
WOMEN'S AND GENDER STUDIES PROGRAM AT MONTGOMERY COLLEGE
The Women's and Gender Studies Program offers courses about women and gender for both women and men.
The program is designed to explore the experiences and contributions of women to their cultures.
Informed by feminist theory, Women's Studies courses:
- challenge false assumptions and theories about women, race, and class
- encourage rigorous critical thinking
- raise issues of gender bias and the subjective nature of knowledge
- support women's development as individuals and as participating members of their larger communities
- expand women's and men's options beyond the limits of traditional gender roles.
These writing-intensive courses help students consider the difference that gender makes in family relationships, friendships, education, and work. They are comfortable settings for delving into feminist scholarship and theory.
In addition to the interdisciplinary introductory course on women's and gender studies, courses in the programinclude: women's history, literature, sociology, psychology, physical education, and women's health.
Honors modules are available for some classes. Service learning and internship opportunities are frequently offered. Opportunities to pursue independent study projects are also available.
