NOTE: The Women's and Gender Studies Residency will not be offered in Spring 2020.

Women's and Gender Studies Residency

The Women's and Gender Studies Residency allows students to choose one of five studies that uses a blended model combining an online component with one onsite meeting in Saratoga Springs, N.Y.

  • Examine the ways that gender roles and identities are socially constructed within specific cultural and historical contexts.
  • Consider how human societies organize themselves and determine power and privilege along gender lines.
  • Explore the development of historic and contemporary gender identities.

At the start of the term, students will study online in Moodle, attend the onsite meeting in Saratoga, and then return home to finish the remainder of the term online. While onsite, students will meet with their selected study group, attend plenary sessions, hear from guest speakers and engage in discussions with faculty and fellow students.
