Women, Gender, and Sexuality (WGS) is a major dedicated to the study of how gender and sexuality shape the past, present, and future of human cultures and societies. Our interdisciplinary curriculum trains students in critical studies of the ways in which gender and sexuality intersect with race, ethnicity, nationality, ability, and other dimensions of difference. Our courses provide students with a wide variety of methodological skills and perspectives with which to conduct their own research, creative activity, and activism.
The WGS program is an inclusive and updated program for the 21st century. We are dedicated to fostering a diverse and inclusive learning environment that welcomes all members of our academic community. Our courses are fused with a wide variety of disciplines from across the College of Arts & Sciences, and they adopt an exciting range of approaches that can appeal to an expansive range of student interests.
