Women and Gender Studies
Our program is one of the largest, most vibrant women and gender studies programs in the country and among the earliest to offer a doctoral degree. We teach more than 3,000 students each year on topics including gender, health, sexuality, science and technology, work, globalization, ecology, social policy, violence prevention, media, film, performance and the arts. Our students participate in leadership activities and explore career interests through internships in the community.
The faculty in women and gender studies value cultural diversity and global engagement, and we work hard to ensure that our program reflects these core values. We believe knowledge about women and gender leads to action, and the proof is in the leadership that our alumni provide to the region and the nation.
Women and gender studies classrooms are knowledge-building communities where students can engage with real-life issues and develop tools for life-long learning. Our goal is to create an interactive learning environment that values diversity and multiple perspectives. Our graduates have forged successful careers in law, education, business, government and in the nonprofit sector serving the needs of their communities.
It’s easy to combine our curriculum with other majors, minors and fields of study. Visit or contact our undergraduate academic success specialists in Wilson 125 for further information.
