Women, Gender and Sexuality Studies  

Welcome

Rosie the Riveter imageWomen, Gender and Sexuality Studies is an interdisciplinary program, offering core courses in WGSS as well as related electives from a variety of departments across campus. The program is designed to offer perspectives on the experiences of women, the effects of the construction of gender and of sexuality in our society. Courses investigate the role of culture, social institutions and policy on perspectives of women, gender and sexuality in psychological, biological, social, political, literary and humanistic terms. Students may major or minor in WGSS by completing introductory, theory and senior seminar courses in addition to related electives in WGSS and other disciplines. Consistent with feminist pedagogy, students are encouraged to apply their academic understanding to community action, through the internship course or various other opportunities for service learning and volunteerism.
