A Required Course in Gender Studies
Brown, Theresa J.
Psychology of Women Quarterly, v35 n1 p162-164 Mar 2011
In this article, the author discusses the origins, goals, structures, and evaluations for a required course in gender studies at the university at which she teaches. This article will be of assistance to faculty members who may be interested in beginning a discussion of how such a course can be implemented at their own institutions. The course, titled "Shaping Lives: Women and Gender," came about as a result of a 2-year-long restructuring of the general education offerings at Georgian Court University (GCU) in Lakewood, New Jersey.
