Graduate Course Information

WGST 510 Feminist Theories (offered every semester)

The basic theoretical questions that we will address in this course range from deceptively simple ones, which attempt to define concepts such as woman/ women, the body, gender, nature, otherness, labor, oppression and change, to more complex interrogations of the theoretical assumptions operating within the explicative frameworks of postmodernism, poststructuralism, social constructivism, postcolonialism, materialism and transnational feminisms.

WGST 520 Gender Equity in the Classroom (offered every semester)

This graduate seminar examines theoretical writings on feminist pedagogy and also addresses practical issues related to teaching Women’s and Gender Studies.  Participants will develop familiarity with  feminist pedagogies and their significance for the field of Women’s and Gender Studies; interpret their own educational experiences within the context of feminist reflections on education; formulate their own philosophies of education; and develop and test pedagogical strategies for developing critical consciousness about social inequalities.

WGST 570 or 670  Topics in Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies (different topics available each semester) 

See https://wgs.tcnj.edu/courses/undergraduate-course-information/ for course descriptions, and check PAWS for schedules.
