The Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies major is an interdisciplinary program that provides opportunities for feminist study, research, close collaborations with faculty, internships, and community involvement. Students will develop a robust general understanding of how gender and sexuality shape our culture, daily lives, social institutions, and interactions, while focusing their studies on specific issues and areas that are of interest to them.
The WGSS BA is highly flexible, permits a great deal of student choice, and is a strong pairing for a double major.
A degree in WGSS equips students with the critical thinking, research, problem-solving and communication skills that are highly valued in today’s workforce, thus opening the door to a variety of challenging careers. It also empowers students to put their education into practice in transformative ways, with an emphasis on advocacy, compassion, and social justice.
