    Major/Minor Requirements

    Applicable for the 2020-2021 academic year.

    Mission Statement

    Feminist and Gender Studies fosters inquiry into modalities of power as they are mediated by gender, sexuality, race and ethnicity, class, nation and citizenship, age, and ability. Through teaching, scholarship, and service, we study and develop these interdisciplinary and feminist theories and critical practices in collaboration with artists, activists, and scholars at Colorado College and beyond.

    Vision Statement

    The aim of Feminist and Gender Studies is to embody a feminist ethos of critical engagement and responsiveness that is attentive to shifting relations of power; to be an intellectual, political, and creative space for the pursuit of exemplary collaborative initiatives locally, regionally, nationally, and transnationally; and to remain conversant with myriad intellectual legacies while reimagining the possibilities of feminist knowledge and practice.
