Drawing from intersectional and transnational feminist theoretical frameworks, the women and gender studies degree program at Nazareth College analyzes gender as an organizing factor in social, political, and familial institutions and policy. Continuing in the field's activist tradition, our program addresses gender-specific social injustices and strives to initiate social change from local and global perspectives.
