UNL Women's and Gender Studies Program

UNL Women's and Gender Studies

UNL's Women’s and Gender Studies is an interdisciplinary program devoted to the study of women, gender, and sexuality. From its inception, the Women’s and Gender Studies program has been committed to promoting a diverse faculty and student body and to offering a curriculum that examines inequities and injustices that have worked against an inclusive and egalitarian society.

We offer over 40 courses from across the disciplines, ranging from introductory surveys to advanced graduate level seminars. Our faculty come from six different colleges and is among the most diverse on campus. In addition to winning numerous teaching awards, our faculty members have won national book prizes and prestigious research grants. WGS students have many opportunities to engage in research, work one-on-one with faculty, participate in internships, and join related student groups. Our commitment to undergraduate and graduate education has attracted some of the brightest students on campus.
