Program Description:

Women's, Gender and Sexuality Studies (WGSS) is an interdisciplinary field of research and teaching that places gender and its intersection with sexuality at the center of inquiry. It raises many questions about gender and sexuality as socially and culturally constructed phenomena that affect our personal lives, artistic expression, social relationships, and the ways we think about ourselves and the world. Women's, Gender and Sexuality Studies considers the ways gender and other social categories such as class, race, ethnicity, nationality, dis/ability, and age shape our experiences. Women's, Gender and Sexuality Studies is one of the fastest growing fields of inquiry to emerge in higher education in the past forty years.
