We’ll help you discover your passion so you can let curiosity move you

Welcome, prospective Women's and Gender Studies student! Here you’ll find resources and information about the program, scholarships and financial aid, and the careers your degree and skills could help you achieve.

This is an interdisciplinary program devoted to the study of women, gender, and sexuality. You will investigate the lives of women as writers and scholars, artists and activists, public figures, and private citizens, in the past and the present. You will also study gender more broadly, which means you will look at feminine, masculine, and queer identities across time and cultures in order to understand how gender signifies relationships of power.

Graduates of our program hold positions as counselors, social workers, health care professionals, editors, and teachers. Others are pursuing MAs and PhDs in a variety of disciplines or are obtaining law and medical degrees.
