Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies

What is WGSS?

Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies provides an opportunity to explore gender and sexuality and their intersection with race, ethnicity, class, and other elements of diversity.  The program is interdisciplinary, which makes for a rich variety of course offerings across many fields.  Students may choose from over 70 courses with more than 70 core and affiliated faculty from 17 departments. 

The Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Program offers a Bachelor of Arts degree, undergraduate and graduate certificates, and an undergraduate certificate in LGBTQ studies, in addition to a wide variety of individual courses, many of which focus on global feminisms and sexuality studies.
