Since the fall of 1997, the Women's and Gender Studies Concentration at Kingsborough Community College has remained an important and innovative site of academic inquiry. This concentration is open to all students. Students must take "Introduction to Women's and Gender Studies" and nine more elective credits from three of four groups, most of which count towards Pathways and your Liberal Arts Concentration. In this concentration, students will analyze structures of power and dimensions of difference by focusing on gender and the ways in which it intersects with other social identities, such as race, class, sexuality, ethnicity, nationality, ability, age, religion, among others. They will learn about concepts of sex/gender systems, histories of social movements, interdisciplinary modes of inquiry, political debates, and cultural productions. They will engage in feminist knowledge projects in both disciplinary locations like English and history and interdisciplinary locations like LGBTQ Studies and Ethnic Studies. Students will challenge dominant narratives of power relations and social inequalities, explore different angles of vision, reposition marginalized groups across location, and link critical examination and practical intervention in their lives and in the world through civic engagement.


Courses in the Women's and Gender Studies Concentration at Kingsborough transfer to other CUNY institutions, such as Brooklyn, the College of Staten Island, Hostos, Hunter, Lehman and Queens College. We encourage students from all disciplines to get involved and to help build our community, comprised of faculty committed to research, teaching, and advocacy work for social change.
