Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of General Studies in Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies

Why study women, gender and sexuality?

  • Confront social problems around gender and sexuality
  • Collaborate with students and faculty from across the social sciences and humanities
  • Build expertise on issues that matter most to you

If you are interested in how gender, race, class, and sexuality structure our world and interactions with one another, and if you are passionate about issues of social justice and inequality, then a degree in WGSS may be a great fit for you.

Students in Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies develop a broad set of skills to critically analyze social issues from multiple disciplinary perspectives, including anthropology, history, law, literature, political science, psychology, and sociology. They learn to employ different methods and modes of analysis to better identify, critique, and productively understand the status of women in society and how structures of inequality interact with gender and sexuality.
