Claremont McKenna College offers a sequence in gender studies through participation in the six campus Intercollegiate Feminist Center for Teaching, Research, and Engagement of The Claremont Colleges. The curriculum is particularly well-suited to the CMC focus on leadership in business, public affairs, and the professions.
The gender studies sequence is designed to accompany a major in another academic discipline. With its emphasis on the relationships between gender and society historically and cross-culturally, and on the changes now occurring in the roles of women and men, on the participation of women in the major institutions of society, and on women themselves, the sequence is an ideal accompaniment to virtually any major at CMC. The transcript indicates official completion of this sequence. Interested students must consult with Professor Humes or Professor Selig, Gender Studies faculty advisors for CMC.
