Men's Studies

Men's Studies News

The first of its kind to be offered in the country, Hobart and William Smith's Men's Studies program offers a thorough look into men's lives, combining courses from the humanities, social sciences, natural sciences, and fine and performing arts to explore theories of masculinity, the history and sociology of men's experience, and gender and sexuality. The program delves into men's identity, and examines ways of knowing and teaching about these matters.

In the Men’s Studies department, students are encouraged to study the identity and lives of men through historical and sociological contexts. Under the instruction of our distinguished faculty, students explore and discover the nature of masculinity today.
