Women's and Gender Studies Residency

Gender and Race in the 21st Century

Women’s studies as an interdisciplinary academic field has emerged in the last 40 years across a broad range of topics, including economics, historical studies, literature, math, psychology, science and sociology. Empire State College has hosted women’s studies residency meetings in conjunction with academic course offerings since the mid-1970s and has continued to evolve as the field itself changes.

Students choose from five studies using a blended model that combines an online component with one onsite meeting at the Manhattan location.

While in New York City, students will meet with their selected study group, attend plenary sessions and group activities and hear from guest speakers.

This unique mode of study will provide students with a perspective of gender and race in the 21st century and offer a variety of activities to enhance the learning experience.
