Bring gender and sexuality studies to bear on important social and intellectual questions by choosing a minor or a graduate certificate in Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies (WGSS). Drawing on the social sciences and humanities as well as the arts, natural sciences, law, and more, studying WGSS is an invaluable complement to any undergraduate major or graduate degree program at Northeastern University. Explore gender and sexuality in the global community by dipping into and across traditional disciplines. Study politics and pop culture, sociology and psychology, writing and religion as they are inscribed with gendered meanings and values. Combining WGSS with your major field of study will open up new ways of thinking and enhance your analytical skills as you apply them not only to your other coursework, but to the world at large. As a WGSS student, you’ll approach your studies through frameworks that bridge traditional fields. WGSS courses will ask students to use theoretical and empirical scholarship within traditional disciplines and across cutting-edge, interdisciplinary frames.
