This text explores the nature of gender as a fundamental part of humanity in a dynamic and evolving world.

Gender and gender relations are considered through a variety of perspectives for a comprehensive understanding of how they impact different aspects of our lives, from interpersonal relationships to human conflict. The inquiry-based approach to this topic encourages students to think critically about personal experiences and consider issues from multiple vantage points. Topics include historical foundations of gender; the experience of being male, female, or intersex; the relationship between gender and power; the relationship between gender and sexuality; and many more.
