Student Profile:   

This course is open to students at all levels. There's usually a wide variety of students in the course, from first years to seniors. Some are Women's/Gender Studies minors when they enroll, but others are not, although they may be by the end of the semester.


Students conduct interviews with three women and three men currently working in the student's chosen career or field of interest, and they analyze and synthesize the data, with a focus on gender and its impact on the workplace experiences of these women and men.


This course provides an excellent opportunity for students to explore the relevance of gender inequality in their own lives. This assignment, in particular, acts as a way to hook their interest on the material by making it pertinent to their own lives. The process of establishing contacts for the interviews offers an in-road for students to begin building networks outside of Elon that may lead toward internships or employment.
