Global Gender Studies Concentration
Gender equality has not been achieved anywhere, but it is an international priority: there is increasing awareness of the fact that abuses of women’s rights are among the drivers of the demographic changes and social inequalities that trigger violent/conflict, as well as poverty and other ills. Gender issues are a critical component of national and international decision-making. This new concentration in Global Gender Studies within the MS in Global Affairs is one of the few master's-level training programs available to equip graduate students with the knowledge and skills to analyze the fundamental relationship between gender and international politics. It provides students with a solid foundation to promote social justice, development, human rights and corporate social responsibility in international development, peace and governance organizations, national foreign affairs, aid, social policy and defense departments, private sector organizations, the not-for-profit sector, and academia.
