Gender, Sexuality, and Women's Studies

We look at history, art, society, and culture through the lens of gender. The study of gender and sexuality will challenge your preconceptions and change your perspectives: You will move beyond static thinking and restrictive boundaries to gain insights that are valuable in many fields, including law, education, politics, business, social action, the arts, and medicine.

We offer a major and a minor in GSWS. Everyone can benefit from a structured discussion of gender in society, and we welcome non-majors to take GSWS courses, join our brownbag lunch sessions, and participate fully in the life of our interdisciplinary program.
