Gender and Women's Studies

Understand, Engage, Transform

Gender and Women's Studies (GWST) is a dynamic field of inquiry that offers students the opportunity to explore issues of gender and sexuality.  As a student in our program, you will develop a set of valuable critical thinking and analytical skills that will give you a solid academic foundation as well as prepare you for a career that values critical thinking, oral and written communication, research and problem solving, and client advocacy.  Our graduates have succeeded in medical and law school, as well as excelled in careers in health, human rights, business, politics, and the administration of community service agencies.  We offer a major and minor for undergraduates and a graduate minor in Gender and Women's Studies and an undergraduate and graduate minor in Queer Studies.  We have several opportunities for students, including internships, travel abroad, and graduation with Honors.  Many of our students (as well as faculty) are active leaders on campus and in the community.  Come join us!
