Welcome to WGSS

The Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies (WGSS) Program draws on the humanities, arts, and social and physical sciences to explore the broad range of intellectual questions concerning the social location of women and men and the ways in which gender and sexuality are embedded in and structure our everyday lives. Students are exposed to an ever-evolving body of knowledge that includes a focus on how gender and sexuality relate to other axes of power and identity, including race, class, and ethnicity. The WGSS program offers an undergraduate minor and a graduate certificate in Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies. We have many opportunities for students, faculty, and scholars. WGSS and the College of Social Sciences and Humanities is the home of Signs: Journal of Women in Culture and Society
