Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Program

Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies is an interdisciplinary program that places women and other marginalized peoples in all their diversity at the center of scholarly inquiry. A wide array of courses examine how gender and sexuality influence our personal identities, cultural and artistic expressions, social arrangements, political and economic systems, and our ways of knowing and understanding the world.

Success Stories
