Graduate Program

Our Graduate program is rooted in the dual goals of examining inequalities resulting from gender, race, sexual orientation, and class through an interdisciplinary lens and translating this research into actionable knowledge that will contribute to the betterment of communities. Our faculty and students engage in interdisciplinary research that examines some of the most urgent issues of our times, both domestically and globally, such as discrimination, violence, human trafficking, healthcare inequality, and migration. Throughout these varied areas of research, our focus is to shine a light on the factors that create and contribute to vulnerability across time and geography.
