Departmental Strengths

Our departmental strengths and areas of expertise are concentrated in the following four areas: 1) Race, Class, and Justice; 2) Globalization and Development; 3) Visual Culture, Narrative, and Ethics; and 4) Bodies, Sexualities, and Science.

With 10 core faculty members and over 60 associated faculty, we enjoy consistent support from the university administration and continue to grow.  Our most recent hires in feminist science studies demonstrate our ongoing commitment to building bridges with other parts of the university, including the Neuroscience Initiative, the Psychoanalytic Studies Program, and the Rollins School of Public Health.  We continue to offer a vibrant undergraduate major and minor, an increasingly popular graduate certificate, and a Ph.D. program that sets the benchmark for the nation.
