Gender, Women's and Sexuality Studies

We are a vibrant academic program offering a minor for undergraduates, support for curricular development and research by faculty, and opportunities to collaborate with community and campus partners who are intrigued by how gender shapes the world. Faculty and courses from twelve departments across the university contribute to this interdisciplinary program. Students and faculty pursue research in the history of women, in theories of gender, in feminism, in the cultural construction of masculinity and in the cross-cultural intersections of race, class, nationality and sexuality.
The program grew out of a desire to make curricula relevant to real-world, lived experience. We strive to make our teaching, research and outreach activities integrated, so that students, faculty, staff and community members engaged in Gender, Women’s and Sexuality Studies have a sense of how our intellectual work derives from and extends into everyday lives, especially those of women.
