Gender and Women's Studies Program

Welcome to Gender and Women's Studies  

We offer interdisciplinary programs with a range of courses for a major or minor or a graduate certificate in Gender and Women's Studies. 

We are open to undergraduate students from across the University, from the College of Arts and Sciences to Engineering and the School of Business.

Because gender and sexuality are fundamental to the ways men and women understand themselves, a major or minor in Gender and Women’s Studies can enhance practically any other field of study. It is a discipline that continually asks us to rethink history, culture and identity, and in the 21st Century it continues to transform scholarship and fundamental assumptions in all areas of the humanities, social and natural sciences, and the professions.
