A student who specializes in the area of gender must demonstrate special knowledge of how biological sex and gender shape individuals’ identities, how they shape experiences in everyday social life, individuals’ experiences with major social institutions, and also, therefore, important life outcomes such as family, career, and health. Students who specialize in this area demonstrate special knowledge of the theoretical and methodological advances that have been made in the sociology of gender for understanding the importance of this individual attribute.
