Take a Course on Gender, Diversity, or Identity in Global Affairs This Fall

Georgetown University offers a broad variety of graduate and undergraduate courses in which students critically engage with the most pressing contemporary issues using a gender lens or intersectional approach. For students who are interested in learning about how gender, race, class, religion, and other identities intersect with the world around them—we recommend these classes as a starting point, though Georgetown offers many wonderful options. 

In Fall 2024, professors across different university departments will offer such courses:
