Women’s & Gender Studies Program

At UNL’s Women’s & Gender Studies program, we’re devoted to critically examining women, gender, and sexuality — through a variety of lenses. Truly interdisciplinary, our program is one of the most diverse on campus, featuring award-winning faculty from six different colleges and course offerings from more than 15 academic disciplines.

Our commitment to undergraduate and graduate education helps us attract some of the brightest students on campus. And we work hard to keep their curiosities piqued throughout their schooling.

We introduce students to exciting ideas, dynamic professors and classmates, and feminist thought and perspectives in small, collaborative learning communities. Our uniquely personalized environment features one-on-one relationships with faculty, engaging research opportunities and vibrant student groups.

Our students gain critical experience and perspectives outside of the classroom, presenting research at events such as the No Limits interdisciplinary conference, and interacting with national scholars at our groundbreaking Colloquium Series.

We prepare our students to excel in a wide variety of careers — ranging from healthcare to international relations, politics to social work. Our students go on to graduate, law and medical school. They publish and teach, lead and inspire.

At Women’s & Gender Studies, we develop high-caliber citizens who pair never-ending curiosity with remarkable bravery. Locally, globally, and personally, they’re the people who aren’t afraid to act.

The world needs more of our people. Join us.
