Program Overview

One of the oldest feminist academic programs in the country, Sacramento State's department of Women’s Studies is dedicated to studying about women, gender, and sexuality. We work towards facilitating progressive political activism, and fostering community participation.

The Women’s Studies Program provides students with an interdisciplinary model of the study of women’s contributions to culture, knowledge, and society, and the role gender and sexuality play in relation to other social and economic forces such as racism, ethnocentrism, capitalism, and militarism. Students have opportunities to examine women’s diverse experiences—locally, nationally and globally—within feminist and social justice frameworks.
