A Distinct Approach: Gender Studies at Notre Dame

Many people see the term “gender studies” and take that to mean “women’s studies.” To be sure, that’s an important part of Notre Dame’s Gender Studies Program.

But Gender Studies isn’t just for women or just about women. Gender Studies applies to everyone – male and female, heterosexual and homosexual — you and me. Gender affects all of us and your understanding of gender will impact your life, whether you go into business, law, medicine, sports, film, or any number of professions.
