WGST 150 - Title IX for a New Generation
Heard of Title IX (Nine)? Feeling confused, or just want to understand it better? Join this new, project-based, student-created course on sex discrimination in education. We will explore the law’s history and impact, analyze the recent national conversations about sex and gender in education, and take a deep dive into how Title IX impacts our own Georgetown community. The rules about gender and sex are changing, and it will take a new generation of leaders to make Title IX work for everyone. This course is an invitation to those future leaders and a unique opportunity to apply academic rigor to one of the most contentious issues of our time. Working with both a professor and peer mentors, students will conduct independent research, practice navigating the social dynamics underlying these issues, engage with experts in the field, and use their creativity and compassion to help the larger community. No previous knowledge is required and everyone is welcome.
