Women's & Gender Studies Major



The Women's and Gender Studies (WGS) major focuses on feminist research and practice. WGS promotes social justice through discovery and production of knowledge that emerges from feminist perspectives on culture and society. Students learn the analytic skills to engage the intersections of gender, race, ethnicity, class, sexuality, ability, and nationality in order to become responsible citizens in a diverse transnational environment. We connect academic work to the social, political, and economic world outside of the university.
