Feminist Studies Launches Phd Program

May 23, 2012

We are delighted to announce the launch of the Ph.D. in Feminist Studies at the University of California, Santa Cruz.  The Department will accept applications in Fall 2012 for the inaugural cohort to begin in Fall 2013. The Ph.D. in Feminist Studies at UC Santa Cruz is an interdisciplinary program that investigates how relations of gender are embedded in social, political, racial, and cultural formations. The program emphasizes feminist modes of inquiry. It provides students with advanced training in feminist methods that challenge existing disciplinary boundaries to foster a rethinking of the relationships between knowledge, power, and expertise.  We work with problem-based research methodologies that acknowledge and go beyond conventional notions of international and comparative studies.
