In the Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies program, students learn to think critically about diverse human experiences on local, national and global levels.
We examine cultural constructions of gender and sexuality, and their intersections with race, ethnicity, class, age and ability in relations to structures of power and inequality.
Our curriculum includes both interdisciplinary courses and courses grounded in disciplines such as history, literature, anthropology, psychology, sociology, economics and cinema/media studies.
In addition to developing theoretical analyses, students participate in hands-on learning experiences. Opportunities for student-driven research and informed activism are central to the WGS experience.
Empowered to use what they learn, students emerge as engaged citizens.
