Women's, Gender, & Sexuality Studies (WGSS)


Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies (WGSS)

The Program in Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies allows students to explore questions about women's lives, gender and sexuality from a variety of perspectives in the humanities and social sciences. Courses examine how gender and sexual identities have been and are constructed, how they intersect with the categories of race, class, and ethnicity, and how we can create a more just and equitable world for people of all genders.
