Women, Gender, & Sexuality Studies
The Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies program will challenge you to produce intellectually rigorous, analytical and creative work that embodies the perspective of gender in its local and global dimensions through teaching, research, and outreach activities. Founded in 1972, the WGSS department fosters the interdisciplinary study of women, gender, and sexuality, through a rich multicultural and internationally informed academic environment. You are encouraged to work with faculty on undergraduate research for credit through independent study, and opportunities for service learning are available for credit through course WGSS 650.
Strengths of the program include:
- Transnational feminism—feminist social movements, identity, migration
- Visual Culture and Representation—cyberfeminism, narratives
- Health and inequality—race, gender, health, & violence
- Sexualities & Bodies—intimacy, capitalism, trafficking
Beginning fall 2015, the WGSS department is proud to offer a full major in Human Sexuality studies.
