Real-World Experience

If you are in the women, gender, and sexuality studies program, gain practical experience through coursework that can include practicum, activism, and capstone components (not all are required).

  • Your practicum includes mentoring younger students by leading small group discussions, demonstrating skills, and presenting research.
  • The activism component includes important community engagement projects—for instance, the creation of a documentary film on the development of visibility and awareness for historically underrepresented groups at Wright State or organizing a panel discussion about human trafficking.
  • The senior capstone, available to majors and minors, places you within local organizations and businesses involved in feminist or social justice work. You will help develop a project that can include elements of advocacy, service, education, or social justice activism.
