101 Introduction to Gender Studies - 3 hours lecture, 3 units
(Letter Grade or Pass/No Pass Option)
This course is an interdisciplinary study of gender.
Emphasis is placed on the theoretical approaches to
studying gender. These approaches include
examining the impact of race/ethnicity in gender
roles, socialization of men and women, and the role of
gender in major institutions (for example, the family,
media, and education). This course is designed for
developing critical thinking skills in exploring issues of
gender through feminist analysis of structures of
privilege and oppression. This course will be useful for
those considering careers in the social sciences, social
work, teaching, counseling, and nursing. (FT) AA/AS; CSU; UC.
