With course offerings from more than fifteen academic disciplines, Women’s and Gender Studies introduces students to exciting ideas, dynamic professors and classmates, and feminist thought and perspectives in small, collaborative communities of learning. Womens and Gender Studies has a wide variety of popular and innovative courses from introductory to advanced classes.

Service learning/internships

Because our program understands that quality education can also take place outside the classroom, many Womens and Gender Studies classes give students the opportunity to put their learning into practice.

  • Courses like WMNS 210 Activism & Feminist Communities allow students to see the role of Womens and Gender Studies in the real world.
  • Many students also participate in WMNS 497 Internship in Women’s & Gender Studies, gaining valuable hands-on experience while learning about some the career opportunites open to graduates of the program.
