The Gender, Work and Family specialty investigates the relationships among the sociology of gender and two closely related fields of family sociology and the sociology of work. It is the focus on the intersection of these established fields of study as a coherent whole that makes the Gender, Work and Family specialty an innovative program. Students have the opportunity to take courses and engage in research on gender, as well as on the connections among gender, work, and family as they pursue a specialization that is unique among American departments of sociology.
