Women's and Gender Studies

Women's and Gender Studies

One of the few community colleges in the nation offering Women's and Gender Studies, Oakton boasts an innovative and comprehensive course of study. Here you'll find dynamic classes taught by first-rate faculty who deeply care about social justice and engaged student learning.  Women's and Gender Studies courses are open to all Oakton students.  Whether you're taking classes to meet general education requirements, transferring to a four-year college or university offering a WGS degree, or simply exploring this vital field for personal enrichment, you also can pursue an optional 15-hour concentration. WGS at Oakton also offers a full range of exciting workshops, presentations, performances and other activities for students and the community. Highlights include the annual juried Women's Art Exhibition in the fall, Women's History Month events, and a biennial conference that draws students, scholars, and performers from around the Midwest. For more information, contact Program Coordinator Kathleen Carot at kcarot@oakton.edu.
