The Gender and Sexuality Studies program at Saddleback College explores how women's and men's lives are affected by society's values, traditions and institutions. The curriculum examines how belief structures, historical events, political systems and economic institutions shape the status of women and men in a domestic and global perspective, as well as how these experiences differ by race, class, ethnicity, nationality, religion, ability and sexual orientation.

Non-majors and Gender and Sexuality majors can take classes in this area as many of the courses count as general education requirements for the Associate in Arts degree and for four-year university transfer programs.
