Program Highlights

  • Visit with Swedish families raising their children in a gender-neutral manner and reflect on your own gendered upbringing
  • Travel with your classmates and faculty on course-integrated Study Tours to examine how constructions of gender and sexuality intersect with ethnicity, race, class, and religion in Europe
