Mission Statement

The Women's and Gender Studies Program at Coastal Carolina University is dedicated to the interdisciplinary study of gender and sexuality as economic, political, and cultural constructs. Courses within the minor rigorously investigate the gendered nature of knowledge, institutional structures, and cultures to promote active learning and engaged citizenship among all University students - male and female - through various feminist theories and methodologies.  


The Program also organizes and sponsors visiting writers, lectures, symposia, films, cultural events, and campus organizations  that are devoted to the advancement of women's and gender studies.
