The Learning Environment
Global Gender Studies at UB has been a leader in the field for more than three decades. Our program offers today’s women and men courses in three interrelated areas: Cultures and Identities; Women and Global Citizenship; and Gender and Public Policy. Our objective is to inspire critical thinking in our students, challenging them to integrate local and global knowledge and to link theory and practice across a wide range of disciplines. The Global Gender Studies faculty and its affiliated faculty members across the university work together to create an intellectual environment in which the changing roles and relationships of women and men throughout the globe can be studied and understood.
