Feminist Studies at UC Santa Barbara

Feminist Studies is an interdisciplinary field that produces cutting-edge research and fosters innovative teaching. The subject matter of feminist studies is more than women: research and teaching focus on the ways that relations of gender, intersecting with race, class, ethnicity, sexuality, nation, ability, and other differences, affect every aspect of society.

The Department of Feminist Studies, with ten core and 50 affiliated faculty members, offers a multifaceted curriculum that invites students to deepen their understanding of diverse women's lives, cultures, and histories in the United States and around the globe.

We offer an undergraduate major and minor, and house the minor in Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer studies.  We have a M.A. and PhD program, and continue to run a doctoral emphasis for graduate students in affiliated departments.
