Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies (WGSS) explores gender and its relation to other axes of power, including race, class, ethnicity, nationality, religion and sexuality. A challenging academic program, WGSS crosses disciplinary lines, including theoretical and empirical scholarship in the humanities, social sciences and natural sciences.
The program is committed to critical perspectives and bodies of knowledge that contribute to possibilities for transformation and change. Toward this end, courses encourage student involvement, critical thinking and personal insight as part of the learning process.
Faculty members from a variety of disciplines offer regular courses in the program, and WGSS publishes a list of relevant courses every semester. Internships and special projects with local agencies are also possible under the supervision of the program’s director.
