Why Gender Studies?
Why study Gender Studies?

A degree in Gender Studies opens a wide range of opportunities for its graduates. Gender Studies students receive a variety of useful skills, including reading, writing, and oral communication skills, ability to analyze complex texts, research and teamwork skills, empathy and solving problems ability.
