The Women’s and Gender Studies Program was introduced in fall 2016. The move made NCCU the first historically black college and university (HBCU) in the University of North Carolina system to offer the course offerings. The interdisciplinary program prepares students to think critically about structures of power, privilege and identity, while exploring intersections of gender, race, class, religion, sexuality and other aspects of social structures affecting women’s equality. It also explores global experiences of women, with an emphasis on women of the African diaspora.
