News and Upcoming Events
Congratulations to the Spring 2015 Graduates of the Women’s Studies Certificate students and Liberal Studies Majors!
Announcement: UH Hilo now officially offering majors and minors in Gender and Women’s Studies!
Since the early 1990’s, many dedicated affiliate faculty from across the university have come together to build an exciting Women’s Studies program at UH Hilo. With the recent approval from the UH System Board of Regents, the Women’s Studies Certificate program has transformed into the Gender and Women’s Studies program, thus enabling students to major or minor in Gender and Women’s Studies. The name change occurs in response to the emerging complexities of gender in our contemporary world. The name change addresses intersectional perspectives from queer, transgender and intersex identities. The concept of gender also opens up discussion of masculinities. Please take time to peruse the website and learn more about the exciting possibilities of integrating gender and women’s studies in your college pathways!
